The Saint John School early childhood program is unique in that our youngest learners experience changing classes learning from specialist teachers for art, music and gym  in addition to their regular classroom teachers. Pre-school and pre-kindergarten students come together with the entire school community several times throughout the year for concerts and events and attend all monthly Assemblies.
All students perform in the Christmas Concert, an annual traditional event. All families, faculty and friends are invited for a delightful holiday celebration.
