St. Matthew Preschool is taking registrations for the 2016/2017 school year.  Your child is eligible for these programs if he/she turns 3 or 4 prior to January 1, 2017.

We are an accredited Music Together Preschool and both the three year old class and the four year old class will have a 30 minute structured music class once a week by a certified Music Together teacher. Jane Roets is our current Music Together instructor. During this time the children will sing songs, dance and play musical instruments.  The children will receive two music cd’s and a songbook containing all of the songs (with words and music) they will be singing in class.  You can find out more about the popular Music Together program at their website www.musictogether.com.

The 4 year old class has Spanish once a week for 30 minutes from a Spanish teacher.

St. Matthew Preschool follows the Connecticut State Preschool Curriculum Framework.

As Catholic early childhood educators, we minister to the whole child– mind, heart and hands.  In our nurturing Catholic environment, we encourage each child in his or her spiritual, emotional, social, physical and intellectual growth.  Awakening the child’s desire to learn, we foster creativity and excitement about learning by facilitating a stimulating environment.  We understand each child’s uniqueness in personality and learning styles.  We create for the early learner opportunities to discover, explore, question and succeed.  Our setting nurtures the child’s spiritual relationship with God and caring attitude for others.
