Class Descriptions:

3’s Classes

The St. Christopher Preschool 3 year old program engages students in a nurturing environment focused on instilling a love of learning through early academics and socialization. Within the learning environment of the 3’s classrooms, students are introduced to the concepts of letter, number, shape and color recognition. Students begin to identify the beginning sounds of letters, as well as begin to write his/her name. Fine motor skills such as pencil holding and cutting with scissors are fostered through small group activities and sensory play. Another emphasis within the 3’s program is on play-based learning. Through play-based activities, students build social skills like sharing, cooperation and personal responsibility. Our core values of basic concept development and a play-centered environment are the first steps toward building a strong academic foundation. 

Students in the 3’s classes must be 3 years of age by September 30th and completely toilet-trained. 

4’s Classes

The 4 year old Preschool program at St. Christopher is structured around academic and play-based activities that prepare students for success in Kindergarten and promote excitement about learning. The 4’s program focuses on upper and lowercase letter recognition and formation as well as first and last name recognition and writing. Students learn to identify and write numbers in addition to basic math concepts. Fine motor skills such as proper pencil holding and scissor grip and motion are developed through daily class activities and art projects. Through play-based activities, students build social skills such as sharing, collaboration and problem solving. 

Pre-K Class

The Pre-K class at St. Christopher Preschool incorporates structure and routines to help students develop school behaviors that promote learning. The Pre-K class is designed for a child who’s birthday is near the Kindergarten cut-off date. This child may need a year to build his/her self-confidence, independence and social skills in addition to growing academically. While the curriculum in this class is similar to the 4’s, students in Pre-K participate in enrichment activities that enhance basic math concepts and beginning reading and writing skills. Developmental activities incorporate problem solving skills, teamwork, creativity and leadership. Students learn through play driven by discovery, exploration and hands-on experiences. Center-based learning is utilized to enhance a child’s academics and social-emotional skills. As students rotate centers, they participate in activities involving seasonal themes, reading readiness, writing, science, math, sensory experiences and pretend play. Pre-K students attend STREAM and Physical Education classes.  

It is recommended that students in this class turn 5 years of age before January 1st.
