Early Childhood

“When children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.
 When children live with approval, they learn to like themselves.”


We are excited about offering the youngest learners with their first school experience in an atmosphere that is engaging and encourages your child’s overall development. Our Early childhood teachers apply specialized knowledge of child development, families and current methods and practices to plan and implement relevant curriculum that both supports and challenges young children. Our Early Childhood program builds competence in language, literacy, mathematics, and other academic disciplines.

Age Requirement

Children entering any session of the St. Walter School Early Childhood Program (Preschool) must be three or four years of age on or before September 1.

NOTE: All children entering 3-year-old preschool must also be “potty trained” before the first day of school.


The Early Childhood hours are scattered slightly so as to blend with the hours of the main building, but also to help keep the congestion of drop-off and pick-up times to a minimum.
