Saint Raphael Preschool

Curriculum

Developmentally appropriate activities for Religion, social-emotional development, language and literacy, English - language development, mathematics, visual and performing arts, physical development, health, history - social sciences and science. We are proud members of Marin Quality Counts. At Saint Raphael's Preschool, we provide a healthy and safe environment for your child. We also provide numerous activities for active, hands-on learning.

Our "Angels" class focuses on the transition to a group experience for our 3-year old children with special attention to their social/emotional development and adjustment. We offer the children a variety of experiences in art, media, play, dramatic play, movement, stories, large/small motor development and interaction with adults and their peers.

Our "Saints" class (Pre-Kindergarten) continues what has begun in our Angels class and focuses on offering our 4-year old children opportunities to develop their readiness for Kindergarten. We sing, play, draw, and explore letter sounds and various themes throughout our year as the children grow in many skills that will support their success in Kindergarten.
