SJS Preschool

St John Preschool

St. John Preschool provides a safe, loving, and fun environment for students to grow socially, spiritually, academically, mentally, and physically, while developing a love for learning and respect for others.

We believe that each child is uniquely designed and loved by God. Our classes are structured to encourage children to grow and learn while using many different approaches and materials.

A typical day may include:

  • Circle Time – Large Group Time
  • Bible Stories, Dramas, & Games
  • Hands on Learning Centers – ex: puzzles, counting & literacy activities, play dough, shaving cream play, blocks, discovery table & fine motor activities
  • Art/Crafts
  • Snack
  • Stories and Finger plays
  • Music and Movement
  • Free Choice Time
  • Group Games
  • Specials Classes – Gym, Music, Art, Computers, or Library

Three-year-old students attend on Tues. and Thurs. mornings with a primary focus on socialization, introduction to school structure, and language skills.

Four and young five year old students attend all day on Mon., Wed., & Fri. with a primary focus on socialization, introduction to school structure, and kindergarten readiness skills.

Little Saints Preschool Enrichment is open Monday-Friday 8am to 3:20pm following the St. John school calendar. Alternate day (from their preschool schedule), partial weeks and ½ day options are available for ease of scheduling. This allows your child to be able to attend both Little Saints Preschool and Preschool Enrichment for a full 5 day a week program.

The before school (7-8am) and after school (3:20-6pm) Latchkey program and some Non-School day options are available as well. A separate fee schedule applies for both of these programs.

Our Preschool, Enrichment and Latchkey programs are all licensed by the state of Michigan. We observe or exceed all the state licensing requirements along with following the rules and regulations of St. John Elementary. All policies and procedures are coordinated between the Program Director, Preschool Teacher, and the principal of St John Elementary.
