Pittsford, N.Y. — In the 2013-14 school year, St. Louis School will expand preschool to include morning, afternoon and full-day options in a newly renovated facility. For the first time, the school will also offer extended-care options for any student in preschool through sixth grade. To accommodate this growth, classrooms in Reddington Hall will be renovated to create a state-of-the-art Early Childhood Center, and classrooms for fifth- and sixth-grade classes will return to the school’s main building.

“We believe that through a developmentally appropriate curriculum, young children develop critical school-readiness skills, as well as a passion for lifelong learning,” said Fran Barr, St. Louis School principal. “Our goal is to provide our students at every level with a safe, values-centered and academically challenging education.”

Both preschool 3 and preschool 4 will continue to boast low student-to-teacher ratios in an effort to provide St. Louis School’s youngest students with the optimum learning experience. The preschool curriculum will meet and exceed New York state’s common core standards, while helping students develop physical, language and cognitive skills. The program is based on the principles of respect, responsibility and community through exploration and discovery in a supportive and enriching environment.
