Early Childhood Program
The St. Clement’s Early Childhood Program is for 3 and 4-year-old children. The program is activity based and child-centered. Curricular themes are changed monthly to maintain interest and introduce variety. The curriculum is designed to stimulate each child’s desire to learn, spark curiosity and excite the questioning nature of 3 and 4-year-old children. Planned daily activities facilitate excitement and enthusiasm. Children learn by doing through experimental activity and play. Students use the playground for 30 minutes each day when the weather is appropriate. Our 4-year-olds also attend Library and Spanish class. Our early childhood program offers time and space for young children to be children while they are free to explore, play and imagine. A teacher and a teacher associate staff the program.
The 3-year-old program class has a maximum size of 16 students. The morning class is from 9:00am to 11:30am and the afternoon class begins at 12:30pm and ends at 3:00pm.
