Pre-Kindergarten

PK FD 5St. Edward School offers a variety of Pre-Kindergarten classes to meet the needs of both 3 and 4-year-old children. The Pre-K curriculum incorporates the academic, emotional, social, physical, and spiritual needs of the young child. The aim is to nurture and teach the whole child and to encourage the attributes for life-long learning. These include: active, personally meaningful, experimental, energetic, interactive, explorative, holistic, and constructive.

The program follows a developmentally appropriate curriculum incorporating math, science, social studies, music, art, Spanish, reading, language arts, spelling, and religion, using an integrated thematic approach. Our approach allows for cooperative learning groups, individualized activities, high interest learning centers, and hands-on experiences for each child. Our curriculum provides the opportunity for each child to experience success on his/her own terms.

Parents are invited and encouraged to see these programs in action. Those who wish to visit our Early Childhood Center, please call the school office at 773.736.9133.

Pre-Kindgarten students do not wear school uniforms.
