St. George's Preschool was established in 1969. The purpose of the school is to provide a half-day program for children ages' 2.9 years through age five. The staff creates a positive environment that encourages each child to develop a healthy self-concept and social community. St. George's Preschool provides a warm and nuturing atmosphere in which emotional, social, physical, and intellectual growth takes place. Within appropriate boundries, individual choice is encouraged to allow all children to participate actively and learn about the world around them.
It is our desire to help parents build a supportive community amongst themselves as well. We foster this by having coffee and snacks on the patio at drop off time occasionally during the school year as well as a fall family dinner, parent soical and a family play day at school.
Each morning the children will spend time exploring indoor and outdoor environments that promote creativity, activity, learning and relaxation. Equipment and materials such as; dramatic play scenerios, blocks, floor toys, table toys, play dough, art supplies and tactile tubs, books and more are used to foster confidence and development in all areas of development. Group time is apart of the daily routine with time for stories from children's books, fannel board stories, songs, fingerplays and musical motion.
The school provides daily snacks.
