St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School provides a comprehensive academic education steeped in Catholic school tradition. Our full-time early childhood program recognizes that development in young children is a continuous process. Although children proceed through the same sequence of development, they do not develop at the same rate. An emphasis in the early childhood program is the utilization of age-appropriate practices to foster a lifelong love of learning. This is accomplished through providing a nurturing and safe environment, classroom experiences providing exploration and discovery, hands-on activities, the thematics units of study, and integration of technology, music and art.
