St. John XXIII Catholic Preschool

Director: Lauren Cordier

In alignment with our school wide mission, the focus of the Saint John XXIII preschool program is to nurture the whole child. Students will be guided to grow spiritually, academically, physically, socially, and emotionally. This growth will occur primarily through hands-on, play-based learning experiences. Learning opportunities will take place both in large and small group settings and include a combination of teacher directed and student directed activities. 

Our curriculum follows the Diocese of Phoenix Early Childhood Standards and the students will engage in developmentally appropriate activities for religion, math, language and literacy, science, social studies, fine arts, and physical development. There also will be many opportunities for social emotional growth across all curriculum. Students enrolled in the Pre-K program will develop readiness skills necessary for kindergarten.
