Our Curriculum

At St. John’s we believe in the value of play and therefore offer a play-based curriculum that includes lots of indoor and outdoor play, sensory activities, and social/emotional support. This means that there may not be a physical product sent home each day with your child, but we assure you that he/she is learning so much during the time spent at St. John’s. Our preschool classrooms will be arranged by centers and will follow both a play-based curriculum as well as include academic and sensory activities that are age appropriate and will develop skills necessary for Kindergarten and beyond.

Beginning Fall 2019 we implemented the Frogstreet Curriculum to help children reach developmental milestones. Frogstreet has Conscious Discipline built into the classroom learning environment. Conscious Discipline creates a learning environment where children know they are safe and loved. The children will begin to learn how to solve conflicts, manage their emotions, and take responsibility for their actions.
