Child-centered Curriculum
St. Mary’s Preschool’s child-centered curriculum is founded on a deep respect for each child’s individual learning pace and developmental readiness. As such, our learning activities are specifically designed to fit children’s needs and interests. While our teachers are there to support and facilitate students’ learning, we also encourage students to develop autonomy and direct their own learning through exploration.

We constantly strive to anticipate the changing needs of our students and to develop new teaching strategies, lessons, and individualized support to meet these needs. Our teachers balance academic goals with an awareness of each student’s cognitive and physical readiness.
