K3 – 3-year-old Kindergarten
The three-year-old kindergarten program (K3) at St. Mary Parish School is a fun, friendly way to start your child’s school experience. We provide a loving and caring atmosphere in which students can gain self-confidence, develop friendships and learn about the world around them. Through play, song and age-appropriate structured learning, students develop independence, a sense of self and a love of learning.
K3 students participate in a curriculum and activities about religion, mathematics, reading readiness and language arts, science and social studies, and learning centers.
The K3 program is a half-day program offered two, three or five mornings per week from 8:05 a.m. to 11:15 a.m.
K4 – 4-year-old Kindergarten
The four-year-old kindergarten program (K4) at St. Mary School strives to provide a warm and friendly learning environment through the use of a wide range of media and materials. Our curriculum fosters self-expression, exploration and positive learning experiences to help each child grow socially, emotionally, spiritually, intellectually, morally, and physically. We believe each child is unique with individual abilities, experiences and needs.
Throughout each school week, our K4 students experience: religion, reading readiness and language arts, mathematics, science, development and understanding of others, morning meeting, learning centers, and “specials” such as art, music, library, computers and physical education.
The K4 program is offered as a full day or half day option. St. Mary’s offers an After-Care program on site from 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm. whenever school is in session.
