SAINT BERNADETTE: Extended Day Care
St. Bernadette School offers an extended day program (EDP) both before and after school. The program originated to assist families needing extensions in the school day due to work schedules. The EDP program is staffed by two licensed teachers, who have designed both enriching and developmentally appropriate activities (STEM experiences, critical thinking experiences, games and physical activities) for the students attending.
St. Bernadette Catholic School provides learning environments that will maximize student success. We recognize the uniqueness of each student learner and provide tutorial guidance and support. Importance is given to the child as an individual, not as a class. We focus on how your child learns. The content of our curriculum and the pace of learning is based upon the abilities and interest of our students. Our goal is to have our students reach their highest potential!
To attend St. Bernadette Kindergarten your child must be 5 years old on or before September 30th. St. Bernadette Catholic School believes that while no simple factor can determine whether a child is ready for kindergarten, your child’s ability to think logically, speak clearly, and interact well with other children and adults are all critically important to success in school. A child's physical development also needs to be considered.
We encourage you to visit our kindergarten class. During your visit picture your child sitting in one of the chairs and joining in an activity.
The following readiness skills will enhance your child’s kindergarten learning experience: Enthusiasm toward learning, solid oral-language skills, the ability to listen, the desire to be independent, the ability to play well with others, strong fine-motor skills, and basic letter and number recognition.
