Preschool

St. Barnabas has both Preschool and Transitional Kindergarten programs.

Our licensed Preschool is for children who are at least 3 1/2 years of age and are potty trained. The focus of our program is social skills and readiness for school and is available as a full or part day program. The full day is 7:50 am to 2:50 pm Monday to Thursday and 7:50 am to 12:30 pm on Friday. The half day is 7:50 am to 12:30 pm daily.

The curriculum includes:

  • Phonics introduced with letter recognition and formation
  • Math is introduced with number recognition and formation
  • Gross and Fine motor skills are practiced continuously throughout the day
  • Socialization and active play are encouraged as an integral part of the school day.

Daily activities include:

Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is for children who are 4 years old by September 1. It bridges the path between preschool and Kindergarten, providing a developmentally appropriate curriculum aligned with Kindergarten standards. It is a full-day program (7:50 am to 2:50 pm Monday to Thursday and 7:50 am to 12:30 pm on Friday).
