The Pre-School of Saint Luke Academy provides the first steps to a life-long love of learning. The program is designed to nurture, stimulate and spark the imagination of our youngest learners.
In addition to providing for the traditional areas of Early Childhood Education, making connections and dealing with the whole child, Saint Luke Academy offers a unique direction in education. We believe it our main task to help children Create Meaning. We do this by teaching students to:
- understand and manipulate symbols (images, sounds, words, numbers),
- acquire the skills necessary for reading and writing readiness and
- develop the personal characteristics necessary for taking turns, sharing materials and ideas, and working in teams
The students in Saint Luke Academy's PreSchool Program learn this by doing. Our "hands-on" discovery-based learning experience makes them dynamic contributors to their learning process as they build a foundation for the acquisition of new skills and proficiencies.
Instructional manipulatives, arts and crafts, educational toys and tools are employed to give our active students a chance to learn through play.
Inter-disciplinary thematic units are used to introduce and practice basic pre-reading and mathematics skills. Reading and Language Arts are integrated into all subject areas and reinforced through daily encounters with art, music, religion and drama. Outdoor play in one of the enclosed playlots is part of every day's schedule (weather permitting).
