Pre-K and Kindergarten
The St. John Pre-Kindergarten classes are Pre-K (3) (Early Childhood Program) and Pre-K(4). Birthdays are prior to September 1st and are whole day programs. We have done extensive planning to create these wonderful programs.
The Pre-K classrooms have been furnished with smaller sized tables, chairs, and activity centers that are just right for children this age. A special playground area was also created for our Pre-K and Kindergarten classes.
St. John School offers a full-day Kindergarten program for children 5 years old prior to September 1st. The program is designed to be developmentally appropriate. Students participate in a combination of whole-class instruction and small group instructional centers. The curriculum uses a phonics-based approach.
Students in both Pre-K and Kindergarten also receive instruction in Music, Computers, Physical Education, Art, and Spanish as age as is age-appropriate.
The classroom curriculum is supplemented by special events throughout the year including field trips.
We are fully accredited by the Oklahoma Conference of Catholic Schools Accrediting Association. More Here.
The Music Together curriculum provides children with the opportunity to learn music in developmentally appropriate ways; supports their cognitive, emotional, social, and physical development; enhances the classroom experience; gives parents enjoyable and significant ways to nurture their children’s development; and enhances happiness and well-being in the school community.
As part of the Music Together® curriculum, Music Together specialists teach weekly music and movement classes in early learning settings in cooperation with classroom teachers. Classroom teachers then follow through on the weekly sessions, adapting activities to their curriculum needs and interests. Recordings, songbooks, and teaching materials are provided to each classroom and family. Children “bring the music home” for parent-child music play, sharing the songs and activities learned in school.
