Full Day Kindergarten Program
Kindergarten is unique in the fact that is it the entryway into a child's academic future. Early years play a very important role in developing basic cognitive, affective and psychomotor skills. These skills help to establish a child's educational foundation. It is in Kindergarten that a child develops a love and passion for learning.
St. John's Kindergarten is a full day program enriched by weekly instruction in Physical Education, Music, and Technology. Our students learn by listening, moving, observing and experiencing. We respect each child as an individual and empower them to be creative, think critically, develop independence and to be good Christians.
Mrs. Cieslewski is our Kindergarten Director. Mrs. Cieslewski is a loving mother of three, with a Masters Degree in Education from the University of Bridgeport. Her life experiences and second degree in Medical Technology, offers a challenging and hands-on approach to education. She feels, Kindergarten is a child's first experience with formal education. This is where a child needs to get excited about the educational process. It is the time to engage the child's interest and lay the foundation for a positive attitude toward learning. Mrs. Cieslewski motivates children with engaging activities that make them want to learn. The Kindergarten program at St. John School is designed to prepare each child for their own success in education and life endeavors ahead.
