St. Bernard’s provides a loving Christian environment in which the children develop basic learning skills and express themselves creatively.
Classes begin the middle of August and run through the third week of May. We follow the Jenks Public Schools calendar for holidays and snow days.
Morning activities include group sharing experiences and individual activities in learning centers. Children participate in story songs, finger play, art and outdoor recreation. Child evaluations are sent home twice a year.
Our three-day program is Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Hours are from 9:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.
Two year olds will have daily activities which include group time, art, outdoor play and gross and fine motor activities. They learn colors, shapes and counting from one to ten. Language development is achieved through finger play, songs, stories and conversations related to their experiences.
Three year olds daily activities include art, play centers, circle time, cooking, outdoor play, stories, games and one on one work with the teacher. Language development is encouraged through songs, stories, rhymes, word games, and hands-on experiences.
Four year olds activities include art, circle time, learning centers, stories, games and one on one work with the teacher. There is an introduction to the writing of letters, numbers, colors, and shapes. Self-esteem is developed through the building of socialization skills.
St. Bernard’s offers extra programs on a periodic basis. These are visits from the fire truck, a policeman, an eye care professional and a hearing specialist. Two field trips are offered during the year. There are two weekly special programs brought into our school. Computer class is taught on Wednesday and Amazing Athletes comes in to teach on Thursdays. Bible story is taught in the classes on a daily basis and once a month the children have an enriched Bible Story in the church with Ms. Sharon from Religious Education.
We recognize and celebrate most holidays during the year. At Christmas, we present a program for our families, and in May we host a Mother’s Day Tea for our mothers. Also in May, we host a four year old graduation and an end of school family picnic.
St. Bernard’s Preschool staff, most of whom have education degrees as well as years of experience, are dedicated to their students and their profession. Teachers attend CPR and first aid training and are required to attend workshops and continuing education annually.
Individual class newsletters are sent home each month to maintain open communication. Parents and teachers work together as partners in the child’s education.
One teacher to 8 children for the 2-year old and 3-year old classes and one teacher to 10 students for the 4-year old class.
