St. Cecilia Kindergarten
St. Cecilia School provides a full-day Kindergarten program with a challenging and developmentally appropriate curriculum. Our goal is to enhance the ways children grow and learn in their early years and cultivate individual spirituality. We believe that each child is a unique individual who learns at a rate that is separate and distinct from that of any other child. We believe that play is the natural language and we value the opportunities for children to explore and interact with each other and with a wide variety of resources. We believe that the most important accomplishment of the kindergarten year is for the children to emerge feeling competent, good about themselves, and enthusiastic about school.

Our program provides:

• An adult /student ratio of a maximum of 1:15 (during the main part of the school day)
• One full-time teacher with 8 years experience teaching kindergarten
• One full-time instructional assistant
• A remodeled and expanded kindergarten which includes a bathroom
• Classes in Spanish, computer, library, PE and music twice per week  from teachers who specialize in those disciplines
• A learning specialist on staff who works with children across the academic spectrum
• Differentiated instruction in reading and math
• Access to our new state-of-the art gymnasium, science lab, and music room
• Spiritual and service opportunities

We welcome the opportunity to guide your child through the school year.
