The First Independent Co-Ed STEAM School
Serving Early Childhood to 8th Grade in Orange County, California

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.
