St. Raphael Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten reflects the desire of the elementary school community to educate the total child. This includes a child's religious and emotional development as well as academic areas. The schedule offers times for religion, music, language/reading experiences, math, science, gym are and social activities. A variety of teaching techniques presented in the class setting allows for various learning styles and the individual's own pace.
All children will be exposed to all material, in hopes of expanding, not limiting their experiences due to gender, ability, or age. The teacher will encourage the children to "do their best" and their work will remain as they have "designed" it.
