Preschool

Saint Jude Parish Preschool Registration for 2017-2018 is now open.

Our Preschool is a Ministry of Saint Jude the Apostle Parish, and provides a warm, loving environment for children age two through PreK.

Our structured classrooms are the setting for a curriculum that begins with socialization and progresses to kindergarten readiness skills.  All that we do is founded on Jesus Christ, as revealed through the teachings of the Catholic Church.  We honor and respect the role of the family in this world, and we hope to serve yours through this Ministry.

Goals and Objectives
Help children to adapt socially to a school environment
Assist each child to feel like a member of the community
Instill in each child a love for learning
Encourage responsible behavior with choices and consequences
Stimulate the need for reading and writing
Introduce new experiences and a variety of skills

Program
Our program is comprised of teaching the alphabet (sounds), shapes and numbers, measuring, pouring, cutting, painting, colors, spatial concepts, sequencing, days of the week, and months of the year.  We incorporate “Zoo Phonics” for our literacy program and “Handwriting without Tears” for our writing program. Our goal is to make learning fun. Each class attends music weekly and we celebrate the children’s achievements with two concerts (Christmas and spring). Children also acquire skills in good manners, listening, team work and thoughtfulness toward their classmates.

Schedule
Our school day begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 12:30 p.m. Each child brings a lunch from home to eat with classmates. In the event of severe weather, we follow Fulton County School closing on the first day of the weather situation. The school year begins after Labor Day and ends in May.
