Flexible Preschool Program

Flexible Preschool Program

Philosophy

Philosophy At St. Barnabas, we recognize that young children gradually grow in readiness for schooling. Curiosity makes them eager to know and learn, and their exploration of the world raises many questions! As they learn about themselves and their surroundings, as well as God's gifts, they develop a caring attitude towards others.

With that in mind, we offer flexible Preschool programs for children ages 3 and 4, as well as a fulltime Pre-Kindergarten program for children ages 4 and 5.

Curriculum

Our curriculum, established by the State of Ohio and Diocese of Cleveland, is developed within an active learning environment with an emphasis on religious experiences, language arts, reading and math readiness instruction, fine and gross motor development, problem solving and positive social behavior.

Our Preschool and Pre-K environments provide all the ingredients for learning along with support from a team of highly qualified teachers, assistant teachers and administration.

We are preparing our little ones to:
  • Acquire foundational cognitive skills by learning through experiences in: Math, Science, Language, Social Sciences, Religion, Art, Music, physical movement, play and field trips.
  • Begin to develop an understanding of Christian values.
  • Use technology.
  • Effectively communicate and socialize with their peers.
  • Successfully transition to Kindergarten.
