Our Philosophy

St. Rita Catholic Preschool provides a nurturing environment in a caring and positive atmosphere to create a warm and happy place for children to learn. As we bridge the gap from home to school, we guide children to a continued good self-image while building social skills in a school setting.

Sensory, motor, perceptual and language skills are introduced through materials and activities, which are both child-centered and teacher directed. Work is planned which emphasizes the process rather than the product, fostering a sense of accomplishment and pride.

In that children’s learning begins by exploring the world around them through tactile experiences, students will foster creativity, develop independence, enhance curiosity and expand social skills.

Each child will be respected as an individual with his or her own timetable and learning style. Through listening, questioning and making choices, the child will learn to enjoy the process of learning and find joy in his or her own achievements.

Infant Class

In addition to holding and cuddling the infants, our teachers are always interacting with them to encourage their mental and physical development.

1 Year Old Class

The One Year Old Class focuses on helping children learn to socialize and interact with each other. Toddlers enjoy hands-on learning through a variety of sensory activities.

2 Year Old Class

The Two Year Old Class introduces students to letters, numbers, colors and shapes. Lesson plans include language development, learning the alphabet, recognizing numbers and learning to count.

3 Year Old Class

In our Three Year Old Class children are introduced to cognitive skills and practice making decisions. Science and discovery activities stimulate curiosity as the children learn valuable lessons about themselves and the world around them.  Art and music activities encourage individual expression.

4 Year Old VPK Class

In the Four Year Old VPK Class the focus is placed on language arts and math fundamentals to promote excitement about learning new concepts. For these active learners our lesson plans are filled with activities to help each child grow socially, intellectually and physically.
