Program OverviewThe Preschool at St. Benedict’s Episcopal School provides children with a warm, loving and educational environment where each child is nurtured and valued in a diverse population. Our goal is for each child to love school and look forward to being in an environment where learning is fun. Our teachers are highly qualified to teach early childhood education through a curriculum based upon age appropriate activities and lessons. All staff members love the young child and offer them individual care, concern, attention and respect. Each classroom is taught by a lead teacher and an assistant teacher and all staff members receive ongoing staff development and training.
Our Preschool begins with our three-year-old class, and applicants should be three by September 1, 2016. Our pre-kindergarten applicants should be four by September 1, 2016.
Understanding the needs of children at this early age, we have designed our preschool program to prepare for our Pre-K classroom. This is a 5 day per week program.
Our hours of operation are 8:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. with early morning and after school care available through our Preschool Passport program from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. We also offer enrichment programs after school in the areas of Tae Kwon Do, Ballet, Bricks4Kidz, Drama and Playball as well as an extensive summer camp program.
Our Preschool operates from August through July with school beginning in early August. The Preschool at St. Benedict’s is accredited "With Quality" by the Georgia Accrediting Commission.
