The Saint Thomas the Apostle Pre K program is a hands-on, faith-filled, learning program.  A typical day consists of morning circle time and prayer.  After circle time the children are separated into groups and begin their day. 

The children have specialized teachers for:

  • Computers 
  • Art 
  • Gym
  • Health
  • Library
  • Music
  • Spanish

The day includes small group instruction, snack time and individualized choice/play time within a carefully monitored environment.  Full day students have lunch followed by naptime, an art project, and outdoor playtime (weather permitting).

Our staff includes one full-time teacher and the age-appropriate teacher/child ratio staffing for teacher aides.  Our classroom and entire school facility are beautifully maintained and constantly upgraded to meet the needs of our preschoolers.
