Saint George Kindergarten offers an early childhood program to help children develop their academic and social skills in a creative, nurturing environment.
The philosophy of Saint George Kindergarten centers on encouragement and positive reinforcement of the students and their efforts. As a result, children learn to feel good about themselves and the school environment. Our priority is the development of the child as a whole.
Saint George Kindergarten offers an early childhood program to help children develop their academic and social skills in a creative, nurturing environment. We offer instruction in language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Children participate in daily hands-on activities to develop their motor skills and increase their interest in and understanding of the world around them. Music, library, computer, and art are important components of this program. The curriculum includes weekly classes in physical education and daily instruction in activities designed to raise the child’s awareness of people and cultures.
Kindergarten classes are located in our Early Childhood Development Center, a wing of the school designed especially for younger students. Each classroom is equipped with a lavatory, sink, and other facilities to accommodate this age group.
