    Pre-Kindergarten

    “Tell me and I forget, Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”

     

    As the Pre-K Admissions Director, I would like to welcome your family to St. Demetrios.

    In free, full-day, high-quality pre-K, children are in a safe learning environment with opportunities to participate in engaging activities and interact with other children and teaching staff.  Pre-K runs five days per week from September to June, on a full-day schedule (6 hours and 20 minutes).

    Our commitment to high standards is reflected in the faculty who work at St. Demetrios.  Our teachers are experienced and degreed with a background in early childhood education where each class has a teacher and a full-time assistant.

    We want children to love learning and to be excited about school.  Your children will learn by using hands-on, developmentally appropriate curriculum that is designed to prepare them for kindergarten.  The goal of our teachers will be to use a variety of methods to meet individual learning styles.  The teachers will encourage critical thinking, creative expression, decision-making, and conflict resolution.

    A marvelous quotation about play is attributed to the most brilliant scientist of the modern age, Albert Einstein: “Play is the highest form of research.”
