Preschool


St. Philip Neri’s preschool program is an exceptional community for three and four-year-old students which inspires a love for learning. Our preschoolers are immersed in a learning-rich, pre-K environment where interactions are thoughtful and purposeful. All parts of our preschoolers’ day present opportunities for learning, and our teachers know the curriculum content and instructional strategies that meets each students’ learning and social emotional needs. Using essential questions, teachers help children connect content in literacy, science, mathematics, and social studies, which takes them beyond rote learning and leads to thoughtful, reflective learning. In our compassionate learning environment, our preschoolers gain the academic skills they need for success in kindergarten and beyond.
