Academics – Pre-K
A great education starts early

Choosing a preschool can feel overwhelming.  In a competitive world, parents often feel pressured to give their children a leg-up on their education by putting them in an academic preschool environment.  Other parents resist early academics, believing that kids need to be kids…kids need to play.

Here at St. Agnes School, we are proud to foster your child’s early development with with a play-based Pre-K program that helps children develop both their intellect and social skills in a flexible, fun learning environment.

Our nationally accredited preschool program* is developmentally appropriate, with standards that are aligned with the New York State Common Core Standards for Pre-K.  Here, we help children gain school-readiness skills in a nurturing, child-centered environment that encourages their natural curiosity.
Our program offers:
  • Flexible programming and structure
  • NYS certified teacher
  • A low maximum student/teacher ratio:
    • 3-year-olds program = 9:1
    • 4-year-olds program = 10:1
  • A Creative Curriculum Developmental Continuum that encourages learning and problem-solving, responsibility for self and others, and pro-social behaviors while developing early reading/writing and math skills
