The first step in your child’s journey to an exceptional life.

PreK PhotoSaint John Paul II Preschool & Kindergarten provide a positive, supportive, and safe environment where children receive guidance, inspiration, and respect from the teachers and aides who care for them each day. We encourage children to experiment, explore, and play in an atmosphere that nurtures both their love of learning and love of God.

Like every component of the Kennedy Catholic Schools, preschool and Kindergarten at SJPII exist as a Christ-centered faith community dedicated to guiding the spiritual, moral, intellectual, emotional, social, and physical development of the children placed in our care. Our programs are staffed by truly exceptional people who are warm and affectionate, who understand how to communicate effectively with young children, who take delight in play, and who share a deep and abiding faith in God.

Kindergarten

Along with teaching Catholic principles and an appreciation for all the gifts God gives us, the kindergarten curriculum promotes creative thinking and problem solving, builds self-confidence, and enhances socialization skills.

The curriculum utilizes creative play, including games, group activities, and age-appropriate computer programs to increase retention and make learning fun. We also employ differentiated learning strategies that allow each child to progress at his or her own pace.

Our kindergarten program focuses on these areas:

  • Religion and Character Development
  • Language Arts including Reading and Writing
  • Math
  • Science and Social Studies
  • Fine and Gross Motor Skills
  • Social Development
  • Creative Arts

The curriculum also features one other critical component: FUN! We strive to let kids be kids because research shows that snack time, recess, and individual and group activities along with those that are focused on traditional academic subjects substantially enhance the learning experience for kindergarten students.
