St. Louis Preschool follows the state standards for three-year-old and four-year-old learning blocks for preschoolers. Teachers provide a daily schedule based upon a planned theme, which includes both child-guided and teacher-guided experiences that are vital to children's development and learning. Play is encouraged in each classroom, as all forms of play promote key cognitive, social and emotional abilities that enable children to live and learn successfully. An early literacy and early mathematics program is used with each class. Music and P.E. Movement classes are weekly specials for both 3-year-olds and 4-year-olds. Library is held once a week for four-year-old classes; and Art and Computer classes are monthly specials for 4-year-olds. A lunch bunch hour program is an option for preschoolers from October through May (Tuesdays through Fridays).

Our curriculum will incorporate the liturgical calendar, and monthly themes will include elements of Catholic religious education appropriate for preschoolers. All classes attend Visits to God's House in St. Louis Church. The Pre-K class attends First Friday Mass each month with the school.

Parent-Teacher conferences are held in January, and our teachers and director are available to speak with parents regarding their child throughout the school year.
