The St. Joseph School District offers multiple opportunities to participate in an Early Learning classroom experience.
This program is designed to honor the nature of learning for young children. Children learn and grow in developmental stages. They learn best when actively interacting with others and with materials that are interesting to them. Children make predictable errors on the road to learning, and they require multiple opportunities for learning to become embedded.
Active family involvement is an integral part of the program. Families are the first and most consistent teachers that children experience in their lives. Children will make the most progress when families and teachers work together. An early childhood teacher and para-professional will plan age-appropriate learning experiences to promote growth and development in the classroom and at home.
