Full Day Kindergarten Program


Kindergarten is unique in the fact that is it the entry into a child's academic future.  Early years play a very important role in developing basic cognitive, affective and psychomotor skills.  These skills help to establish a child's educational foundation.  It is in Kindergarten that a child develops a love and passion for learning.

St. John's Kindergarten is a full day program enriched by weekly instruction in Physical Education.  Our students learn by listening, moving, observing and experiencing.  We respect each child as an individual and empower them to be creative, think critically, develop independence and to be good Christians.
