Tel: (480)948-3606
Grades: PK - K | 73 students
The preschool and kindergarten at St. Maria’s allows each child to discover their own unique God-given talents and abilities.
It is a time for individual encouragement and to establish a wholeness through spiritual, emotional, physical, social and cognitive development.
Our preschool/kindergarten curriculum utilizes “hands-on” materials to present language, math, science, art and religion.
This curriculum will aid the child’s ability to observe, to discover, to concentrate and to make individual choices with his/her own thought process.
Research clearly indicates that play can facilitate healthy development and is essential for children to develop various cognitive, social and emotional skills and abilities.
Play may even provide the best context in which children grow and learn.
These activities will serve to enrich and challenge in an environment where each child is respected and loved as an individual.
