Philosophy

The PreKindergarten program at Saint Philip Neri School is designed to help your child grow and prepare for Kindergarten by offering opportunities for developmentally appropriate experiences. The primary goal of our program is to strengthen each child’s fine motor skills, listening skills, and social interactions. We also help to build the child’s self-confidence and self-esteem to prepare for success in Kindergarten and beyond.


Throughout the school day, a variety of developmentally appropriate experiences are offered. These experiences contribute to the child’s intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development.


The Investigator Club and Frog Street are the programs implemented throughout the school year. Using components of these systems, your child will be exposed to opening and closing class meetings, small group and whole group instruction, learning centers, investigation stations, child initiated and teacher instructed lessons and much, much more!

The main focus of the pre-kindergarten curriculum, however, includes play! During inside time, play centers are prepared so children are challenged and encouraged to work at their own pace, make and correct their own mistakes, and learn by doing. When these basic skills are developed, the child will be prepared to face challenges that will arise and in turn will contribute to success in their academic future.
