Creating a safe, caring, and playful environment for Preschool students
Saint Patrick Academy welcomes preschool students ages 3 to 4 years old to an educational experience like no other. Our experiential approach to a values-based education prepares students not only for the educational challenges ahead but also for life’s challenges. We respect each student as the individual they are and work with them to bring out their best abilities. Our School is integrated, so people from all different religions and cultures work together here in a culturally rich environment. We also allow for students to explore different educational paths in preschool, because these years are so important in their personal and social development.
An integrated education is one where students can be confident to express who they are as an individual and follow the path that suits them best. Respect for oneself and others is established from the start, which enhances our goals for success. Our programs are experiential by nature, in order to foster problem-solving and appropriate decision-making skill development. In the early years, we create an environment where students can express themselves through engaging in subject related activities. We believe that high level of student engagement provides for an opportunity for students to be involved in forming their educational journey and discovering personal interests. Student personalities develop based on their interests and experiences in school at a young age. Our early childhood programs also focus on fundamental social, emotional, and cognitive skills needed for primary school and beyond.
While we do teach religion, math, language arts, social studies, and science, we approach each subject in a manner that is relatable and approachable to our students. Our students are eager to learn and look forward to going to school. Support at home is essential to keeping the progress moving in positively, and we value parental partnership and collaboration. Saint Patrick Academy also connects with local organizations, authors, and performers in order to connect our students with the local Portsmouth community.
