The Preschool, Prekindergarten, & Kindergarten Years
At Saint Jeanne's we are dedicated to opening students' eyes to the beauty of their faith and the joy of learning, developing their natural enthusiasm and thirst for knowledge. The confidence that grows from exploring new ideas and discovering new skills equips these very young children with a zest for learning which they carry with them the rest of their lives.
Licensed by the State of California, great care has been taken in the design of the early childhood education program. It is a curriculum that has been constructed with age appropriate learning activities that meet the individual needs of children in this age category. The Preschool and Pre-kindergarten provide an ideal environment in which girls and boys can flourish and develop spiritually, socially, and physically as well as academically. Areas of instruction include: Fine Arts, Language Arts, Mathematics, Play, Physical Education, Religion, Science, Social Studies, and Technology.
Our caring, professional, and experienced staff is specifically trained and certified in Early Childhood Education. They are dedicated to providing a Catholic environment that is loving and safe. The school offers a 5-Day Program: Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm. Lunch, two snacks, and extended daycare (3:00 - 5:30) are all included in the regular monthly tuition charge.
Children who are three years of age as of September 1 of the calendar school year are eligible for enrollment. Pre-kindergarten children who are four years of age as of September 1 of the calendar year shall be eligible for enrollment in our Pre-kindergarten Program. All children must be fully potty trained.
