OUR PRESCHOOL

OUR MISSION

The Preschool is an outreach ministry of the parish, and its mission is to provide safe and dependable care and educational opportunities for young children in a Christian environment.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Our standard is child-directed, developmentally appropriate education that emphasizes rich and creative experiences and develops the love of learning. We understand that each child is unique with different, valued gifts. We encourage each child to respect the rights of others, develop independence, build self confidence, and attain the fullest capacity for emotional development.   

 OUR COMMUNITY

Our school is enhanced by the rich and varied support we receive from our families, parishioners, preschool and church staff and local organizations. Participation is encouraged in a variety of ways: Parent/Teacher Advisory Board, school committees, donations, and as classroom ‘helpers’, assisting our teachers with numerous school and classroom activities.

CURRICULUM

The children at Saint Boniface Preschool have numerous opportunities for emotional, cognitive, physical, spiritual, and creative growth through exciting learning centers and appropriate, child-directed activities in each classroom. Educational development stems from creative play, which is a major component of our instructional program. We have incorporated the nationally recognized CREATIVE CURRICULUM as the basis of our classroom activities. This highly regarded developmental curriculum provides cognitively stimulating and physically challenging opportunities for growth and development in all areas. We feature activities and materials that focus on literacy, dramatic play, art, music, science, mathematics and fine and gross motor development.

OUR CAMPUS

Housed on the grounds of the Saint Boniface Episcopal Church on Siesta Key, our amply sized classrooms exceed national standards and accommodate our toddlers, three-year- olds and four-year-olds in the Voluntary PreKindergarten (VPK) programs. We are currently upgrading our three playgrounds to create beautiful and enjoyable areas. One playground will be converted into a "natural" play area, incorporating a butterfly garden, wooden stepping blocks, sand and water experiences, and wonderfully sculpted oak trees. We also have a large indoor area for fitness and gross motor activities providing safe, creative, and stimulating activities for children.

DAILY PROGRAMS

We welcome children from 12 months to 5 years of age.  Our preschool program for the 2014-2015 school year is from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, with 2-, 3- and 5-day schedules.  Before-care (8:30 - 9:00 a.m.) and After-care (12:00 - 3:00 p.m.) options are also available.  Each of our classrooms focuses on free choice activities at a variety of centers including books, dramatic play, science, art, math, etc. Children are engaged in free play activities and outdoor play for substantial time throughout the day, enriching their minds and bodies.

Classes begin in early September and finish mid-May.
