Your child’s social-emotional well-being is the primary focus of our program while providing a valuable skill based curriculum which lays an important foundation for your child’s success during their future school years at St. John’s. What sets St. John’s apart from other programs is our innovative and creative approach to learning through a STEAM framework which will stimulate your child’s creativity, help them develop problem-solving skills, and nurture teamwork with peers. We are proud to include several enrichment classes taught by specialists in their field. These enrichment classes include Chapel, Library, Music Together, Fitness Fun, and STEAM Explorations.

Our outstanding teachers, combined with STEAM guided curriculum, enrichment classes, and fresh, daily explorations, provide a balanced program to meet your child’s social-emotional, cognitive, physical, and academic success.
