Early Childhood Program

The St. Clement’s Early Childhood Program is for 3 and 4 year old children.  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, including outdoor play daily.  Our 4 year olds attend Library and Spanish classes and also have the option of transitioning to Kindergarten after the year in the program.  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 full-time aide 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. A full day option is also available (9:00am-3:00pm). Classes meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays. (There is no Extended Day Care for 3 year olds.)

The 4-year-old program meets on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Maximum class size is 18 students. The morning class is from 9:00am to 11:30am and the afternoon class begins at 12:30pm and ends at 3:00pm. A full day option is also available from 9:00am to 3:00pm.
