The Butterflies (4/5 year olds)
Miss Beverly and Miss Tamara are our amazing Butterfly teachers. This is usually our biggest class of 15/16 children! As the oldest group at St Paul's this group of children is ready to take flight in this big and beautiful world that God has created! Preschool skills is the main focus in this class. The children take pride in learning to write their name, learning about letters and many learn to read simple text by the time they leave to kindergarten! They also learn about math and science with actual hands on science experiments. They even get a bit of introduction to agriculture by planting their own vegetable garden twice a year! Playing make-believe is increasingly important and these children learn to play-act adult roles in their play. Best friends begin to emerge and there is excitement about being "the oldest" and nearly ready to start kindergarten!
