St. Ma!hew’s Early Childhood Division is located in the heart of the campus’
pastoral se"ng. Four classrooms and three spacious play areas provide an
arena where 35 year old children are introduced to developmentally
appropriate ac$vi$es and concepts. We believe young children gain a sense
of their iden$ty and selfworth when they explore at their own pace and
experience success at their developmental level. Learning at this age is
through experien$al interac$ons with materials, ideas, and other people.
Play is one of the major ways in which young children learn about the world
around them. Through play, children learn about language, develop
intellectual concepts, build social rela$onships and understandings,
strengthen physical skills and deal with stress.
Our Preschool and PreKindergarten programs nurture growth in all areas
of human development: cogni$ve, physical, personal, social, crea$ve, and
spiritual. We respect each child’s pa!ern of development, recognizing the
uniqueness of each young person while crea$ng a suppor$ve and caring
peer group and school se"ng.
