"According to St. John The Baptist Catholic School A child’s education is a journey.
On their journey, they travel at a different pace according to their individual development.
Our goal is to gently assist the development of the whole child spiritually, physically, emotionally and intellectually, by providing a loving and nurturing environment that reflects our Catholic beliefs, values and attitudes.
We strive to guide your child’s growth in language, imagination, social awareness, creativity, self-esteem and self-reliance.
The children will learn through an array of fun experiences and play.
Special attention is paid to fostering independence, confidence, cooperation and compassion.
Developing social skills, being a good friend and having positive feelings about learning and school is an important part of our class.
Kindergarten readiness will be developed through many interesting and motivating activities."
