St.  John Berchman's early childhood program emphasizes the social, academic, spiritual and physical development of our little ones. Each of our K3, K4, and K5 classes is taught by a certified teacher and a certified assistant. Students attend school Monday-Friday at 7:45 am with pick-up between 2:45 and 3:20. SJB has an extended daycare program with early drop beginning at 6:20 am and pick up until 5:30 p.m. Pre-schoolers have the option of a hot lunch or they may bring their lunch. They have a designated rest period from 1:00-2:30.

The preschool curriculum includes activities in STEM: science, technology, engineering, and math, along with language and early literacy. A typical preschool day is engaging and interactive with independent learning stations, circle time, group play inside and outdoors, story time and group interaction.  Students’ development and sense of independence blossoms through the use of various centers: dramatic play, housekeeping, art, science, math, and language. Preschoolers have the opportunity for enrichments such as weekly music class, library, PE, computer, and drama. Preschoolers learn prayers, The Sign of the Cross, bible stories, and learn about the life of saints.  Students learn by routine and look forward to the next day.  

From the earliest grade, Preschool 3 students are a part of the greater school community. They learn through observation of the older students as well as through meaningful relationships they develop within the school community.  Students begin each morning attending morning assembly with the entire school beginning at 7:45 where they participate in the morning prayer, Pledge of Allegiance, recitation of the Mission Statement, and morning announcements.  The older students will also mentor our preschoolers through class lessons or presentations.  Preschoolers attend weekly Mass with the school and are assisted by our elementary students.
