The Pre-K Five program at St. Mark’s Preschool is designed for children turning five between July and December. It is an in-between step for children who have completed a Fours program but are not quite ready for kindergarten. Our curriculum is designed following the “Project Approach” and was created by our experienced teacher, Mrs. Cathy Panagrossi. Learn more about the Pre-K Fives curriculum here. Mrs. Panagrossi, as a former kindergarten teacher and current preschool teacher, is in the unique position of having experience with both ages. A daily schedule that balances exploration of concepts, kindergarten readiness, and creativity along with time to play both indoors and out will prepare children for the next steps in their schooling.
Tuesday/Thursday 9:00am-12:00pm (optional extended day until 1:55pm)
