Program Highlights

All Saints Prekindergarten students have fun while developing academically, spiritually, socially, creatively and emotionally. Our Pre-K Program focuses on:

  • Social Development
    Children have ongoing opportunities to develop their social skills. Teachers model appropriate problem-solving strategies and encourage the use of words to express thoughts and feelings. Group activities stress the importance of sharing, cooperating and helping, following directions, and negotiating.
  • Intellectual Development
    Our hands-on approach to learning places emphasis on developing language skills through listening, reading stories and poems, rhyming, dictating stories, phonetic games, dramatic plays, drawing, journaling, and inventive spelling. We incorporate hands-on technology into learning through the use of ActivBoards and iPads. Through activities using shapes, colors, sizes, sorting, measurement, counting, and numbers, children develop cognitive and math readiness skills. They observe, interact, explore and problem-solve.
  • Spiritual Development
    Religious studies are woven throughout our school day. Children discover God as their Father and Jesus as their friend, and show their love through prayer, songs and finger plays. The Pre-K Christ Our Life Series introduces our Pre-K students to various Saints, Bible stories, prayers, virtues and liturgical seasons.
  • Creative Expression
    Children express themselves through dramatic play, music and the use of art media. Inclusion of open-ended projects allows for creativity and originality.
  • Emotional Development
    Children are loved and encouraged with words of praise and positive motivation. We develop a mutually respectful relationship with each child, while creating an environment where children are happy and eager to learn.
  • Physical Development
    Children have daily opportunities to develop their motor skills. Activities focused on cutting, drawing, painting, manipulatives, puzzles, modeling class, etc., develop fine motor skills, while daily outdoor play (including running, jumping dancing, balancing, throwing and skipping) builds large motor skills.

Testimonials

Here’s just a few comments from parents about their Pre-K experience at All Saints:

This was such a great year for our sons. We are so proud of them both! We have seen them develop rapidly in their skills, talents, and knowledge learned at your school. To our amazement, they seem to be accelerated in their subjects and learning process to such a high degree, especially when compared to our own pace and development in the beginnings of our education. This is a true testament to your organization and quality of work that your staff and teachers deliver on a consistent basis.

It is with great confidence that we know our children are in good, caring hands at your institution. For all of this, we are very thankful and grateful to be part of the All Saints community and to have the opportunity for our children to attend school in such a high-quality environment.

Michael & Tatiana H. ~ All Saints Parents

I had the good fortune of witnessing your All Saints’ Pre-Kindergarten Christmas Pageant. It was brilliantly conceived and masterfully executed. Our grandchild has essentially won the lottery, by being able to attend All Saints Catholic School and having you as a teacher.
