Early Childhood Division

As the initial stage in education at St. John’s, the Early Childhood Division program provides appropriate developmental practices that encourage intellectual development in a positive and nurturing environment. Attention to specific individual differences of youngsters within a small-group setting allows for optimum learning to occur. Children develop understanding through meaningful experiences and explorations, and learning takes place through the active involvement in relevant, interesting, and age-appropriate activities.
