Early Childhood Education
The St. Clement’s Early Childhood Education program is for 3- and 4-year-old children. Both programs are activity based and child-centered. Curricular themes are changed monthly to maintain interest and iroduce variety. Students use the playground for 30 minutes each day when the weather is appropriate. The curriculum is designed to stimulate each child’s desire to learn, spark curiosity and excite the questioning nature of 3- and 4-year-old children. Planned daily activities facilitate excitement and enthusiasm. Children learn by doing through experimental activity and play. Our early childhood program offers time and space for young children to be children while they are free to explore, play and imagine.
