Learning is a joyful experience for 4-year-old and young 5-year-old children* at Saint Cecilia. Our Pre-Kindergarten program provides the perfect balance of structure, caring, discipline and nurturing as students embark on their first experiences with what will become the foundations for math, science, social studies, art, language, music movement and dramatic play.
*Entering students must meet the age requirement by August 31.
Our older students serve as role models for Pre-Kindergarten children. Pre-Kindergarten students are joined by older students who come to the Pre-Kindergarten classroom as “reading buddies.” All students visit the public library regularly.
