Welcome to the 3K Program at Holy Apostles School
Holy Apostles School  is excited to welcome 3 year old students to our community of learners.
 
As the first introduction to school, the 3K preschool program will provide a foundation for success in 4K and beyond, and will reinforce the Catholic values found throughout Holy Apostles School.

 

Our goals for each child are to develop a love of learning, a love of Christ, foster independence and develop social and personal development skills (following directions, cooperation, good manners).

3K3

 

 

We strive to develop fine and gross motor skills, pre-reading and math readiness skills, language development, and social skills.  We do this through: Gluing, cutting and tracing; counting; letter recognition; color recognition; grouping objects; spacial relation; free and group play; self-help.

 

 

In 3K, a typical day begins with welcoming our students into the classroom and allowing them free-choice play while everyone arrives.  Once all students have arrived, we begin our carpet time with our morning meeting where we begin in prayer, learn a song or finger play, read a story, and focus on a lesson as a large group, based on a weekly theme. 
 
Once a week we have show and tell, which is designed to help the children develop speaking and listening skills. Once a week we also visit the library. 
 
We break for morning snack and then continue our large group instruction with another story, craft, or other activity.  We end our day with free-choice play, where students are encouraged to play and explore their environment in various centers at their own pace, and outside time on the playground.   
 
 
We have many other field trips and special programs! Read more here.
