Our Preschooler's World
A Loving and Creative Environment
At St. Paul's Day School, children improve coordination, learn complex games and begin to form relationships with their peers. Our teachers balance group interaction with individual attention to help our preschoolers build social, cognitive, language and motor skills, along with self-esteem and self-help skills.
St. Paul's Day School utilizes the new CT Early Learning and Developments Standards (ELDS) and CT Preschool Assessment Framework (PAF). Our curriculum is organized to develop their skills and confidence. Each age-level program incorporates language, math, science, creative arts, music, motor skills and social development. Our experienced teachers reinforce developmental objectives through fun and engaging age-appropriate activities. Games, songs, movement and art allow children to build skills and confidence, while providing time for child-directed play. Your child can explore and discover at his or her own pace. Field trips and visits from various professionals serve to enhance the children's creative minds.
Partnership with Families
Our teachers and staff are passionate about forming a strong partnership with you to ensure the best possible experience for your child. Parents play an active role in their child’s early education through regular communication with teachers and involvement in the school's Parents Association. We encourage each student’s entire family to be involved in the social life of our school through a variety of events and special activities meant for everyone. We believe happy and involved students, and their families, enrich both the school and the community at large.
At St. Paul's Day School we feel strongly that by involving our students in community service activities, we are helping them to become good citizens of the community around them. Each month, our school provides opportunities for children and/or families to participate in a community outreach initiative. The initiatives are kept simple and age appropriate, so that our young students can grasp the underlying principles. By these efforts, we are encouraging and teaching our children to live by the Golden Rule. Some months, it is a drive for new or gently used items for a local charity while other months we assemble food bags for a local pantry. During the holiday season, our youngest students decorate paper bags that are then stuffed by our oldest students with healthy snacks for children in need and our older students also sing to the residents at The Nathaniel Witherell. Other initiatives include our pajama drive, where children get to bring a new set of pajamas for children in need and in turn they get to wear their pjs to school, which is always popular!
