Early Education Department (Preschool, TK & Kindergarten)
The Early Education Department at Immaculate Conception School stands out as a premier option for families who wish to get their child or children ready for academic success. Our welcoming atmosphere and dedicated faculty and staff ensures that all students that walk in through our doors are ready for a lifetime of learning.
Immaculate Conception Preschool is fully licensed by the state of California and is designed for children who are age 2 (prior to September) to 3 (prior to September), and are potty-trained.
Our Preschool faculty consists of a full-time Director and a full-time Teacher, who are further supported with the help of one-to-two instructional aides. Our caring and enthusiastic team provides all-day supervision and instruction, with a core focus on social, emotional and foundational learning development. Children learn shapes, numbers, manners and basic sharing and listening skills, all the while engaging in play, song, dance, and creative arts.
Our Preschool follows a similar schedule to our regular classes, beginning at 8:00am and ending at 3:00pm, with optional after-school daycare, provided at an additional cost, from 3:00pm-6:00pm. State, federal and Catholic holidays are regularly observed, as well as Summer break.
Transitional Kindergarten (TK):
As the first phase in our two-year Kindergarten program, our TK class is designed for children who are age 4 (prior to September), and are potty trained.
Our TK class is led by a passionate full-time teacher and supported by an instructional aide. We provide all-day instruction with a core focus on bridging the foundation from Preschool with the more academic demands of Kindergarten. Research shows that children who attend Transitional Kindergarten acquire more of the necessary maturity and confidence to achieve long-term success in their learning. In TK, students learn basic social development and are exposed to the foundational concepts by which they’ll develop future skills.
Our TK class begins to fortify the schedule of our regular classes, beginning at 8:00am and ending at 3:00pm, with optional after-school daycare, provided at an additional cost, from 3:00pm-6:00pm. State, federal, and Catholic holidays are regularly observed, as well as Summer break.
The Kindergarten program at Immaculate Conception is designed for children who are age 5 (prior to September) and completes the Early Education program.
Led by our dynamic Early Education Dean and Kindergarten Teacher, students are completely immersed in the curricula and practice that enables them to begin meeting the demands of the California Common Core standards. Upon completion of one year of Kindergarten, students are prepared with the knowledge and practice to meet the needs of scholarly success.
