St. Bridget School offers a three-year-old and a four-year-old pre-kindergarten program. Children may participate in either half or full day for three days
(Monday, Wednesday, Friday) or five days a week. The purpose of this program is to provide opportunities for learning for younger children in a nurturing environment where they can grow socially, spiritually, emotionally, intellectually and physically.
The Pre-K-3 program allows for the continued growth from the home environment into the school setting. The growth of motor skills, development of self-concept and concept of others around them as well as the world, intellectual growth, and religious faith development of beliefs and understandings are stressed.
The Pre-K-4 curriculum is a kindergarten readiness program. It consists of a faith lesson, free play, circle time, art and science projects, reading, writing and math readiness activities, and language arts. Each week a letter of the alphabet is showcased with various activities including cooking or baking an item that begins with the letter of the week.
