St. John’s Kindergarten is an all day, everyday program. Our curriculum provides developmentally appropriate activities in a supportive, Christian atmosphere. We build on the learning that takes place in your home and we help your child to become an eager, independent, life-long learner. Parents, friends, and relatives are invited to special events throughout the year, including the Christmas Program, Baptismal Masses, and Spring Music Program, as well as any field trips we take.
Kindergarten Round Up, a day set aside for new kindergartners for the following school year, is held in spring. At this time the new kindergartners and their parents are invited to meet the kindergarten teacher and principal, be introduced to the curriculum and to visit the school. Registration is also held at this meeting. Other parents interested in sending their child to St. John’s Kindergarten may call the office.
