Preschool Curriculum

Registration Form

St. Sylvester School offers an engaging environment for our 3 year old and 4 year old preschool students. Each of our qualified preschool teachers provide a loving, safe, and stimulating classroom for learning to take place. Our preschool teachers continuously inspire creativity, imagination, independence, friendships, play and fun. Our teachers provide a developmentally appropriate play-based curriculum where daily activities include lessons and activities in reading and math readiness, religion, arts and crafts, music and movement, gym, French, and Spanish.

Both preschool programs offer a unique curriculum designed to meet the specific developmental needs of each age group.

  • The curriculum for the threes is mostly an introduction to letters, numbers, colors, shapes, social and language skills, fine and gross motor development.
  • The curriculum for the fours is more academically based with assurance of number and letter recognition, phonemic awareness, colors, shapes, improving social and language skills, and continuing fine and gross motor development.

Overall our Preschool Programs have a wonderful balance of fun learning, structure and routine nurtured by loving teachers in order to eventually prepare them for kindergarten.
