Preschool student at Chapel

Early childhood learning is a joyful experience at St. Martin’s. Experienced preschool teachers begin students’ academic journey through play-based learning that teaches letter and number recognition, counting, pre-writing, and character building. A formative 3’s program leads to hands-on exploration in our PreK classes in which children continue their learning through reading, writing, and hands-on inquiry-based learning. Teaching is dynamic, targeted and creative; learning is playfully purposed.

Our curriculum focuses on school readiness, and students are exceptionally well-prepared with a foundation for success in kindergarten.
