St. Mark welcomes children from 2 1/2 to 5 years of age. Our youngest children are in Cottage 1 from 9:00a.m. to 1:00p.m. As the children grow and are ready for a longer day, we offer an optional 5th hour for children 3 1/2 and older. Our TK program, for our oldest group, is 5 hours long, running from 9:00a.m. to 2:00p.m. We provide a developmentally appropriate learning environment and activities in order to facilitate all aspects of a child’s development.
St. Mark Community Preschool provides a developmentally based thematic curriculum. Our classrooms provide a weekly lesson plan of activities which include both large and small group time activities, calendar, weather, cooking, music, and movement, learning concepts such as shapes, letters, numbers, counting, sorting, and creative arts. Along with our daily lessons, there will be many activities that will enhance your child’s large and fine motor skills, social skills, communication, and problem-solving skills, as well as the importance of values.
