St. Pius Preschool is guided by a Catholic pre-primary curriculum. We believe that children learn best when they have the freedom to explore their environments, select materials that are self-correcting and given time to learn and absorb the concepts being investigated. The teacher is seen as a guide for the learning that occurs, and provides learning tasks or jobs based upon observation of the child. Life-long learning occurs most efficiently when the individual child's interests and development determine the materials being offered for exploration.
