3K & 4K

3K & 4K is Great!

Program Philosophy

The emphasis of the 3K and 4K program is to build early learning skills and to help children fall in love with learning.

We enthusiastically utilize the child's natural inquisitive, explorative and creative nature to "learn by doing."  This active approach to learning makes school fun and exciting. Your child will experience this hands-on approach to learning through participation in story time, dramatic play, arts and crafts, music, puppetry, science exploration, and field trips. 

Pre-Literacy Program: Emphasis is put on supporting letter recognition and some sight word reading.

Faith & Values: The child's faith development is nurtured through role modeling of Christian values, daily prayer, and by an atomosphere of love and trust.


iPads & Technology: Each classroom has access to iPads and Smart Boards, which serve as tools for interactive learning.

Music & Art: Learning is supported daily through singing, playing music, and exploring many ways to create with different paints, paper, and materials.

Math Skills: Observations, discovery activities, concrete experiences, and playful creativity help develop math readiness skills.

We invite you to come and visit the St. Francis of Assisi 3K & 4K classes and see our program in action!
