All-Day Academic Kindergarten

 
Early childhood is the time for developing your child´s academic, social, and spiritual growth. The St. Alphonsus/St. Patrick All-Day Academic Kindergarten Program provides your child with a hands-on approach to learning through a variety of teaching strategies. The children participate in individual, small group, and whole group learning. In addition, they regularly enjoy music, library, technology, art, and physical education class.
We pride ourselves in providing students a challenging academic education while building their love of God and commitment to improving the world. We educate the whole student – mind, body and spirit – and encourage each child to become the person God calls him or her to be. Ultimately, our goal is to prepare children for academic and personal success in a faith-filled, nurturing environment.
