SHCA Little Saints Preschool Program Hours Of Operation
Full Day: 8:30 am - 2:50 pm
Half Day: 8:30 am - 11:30 am
All preschool students must be fully potty trained. Only full day students are eligible for the GAP program.
Our half-day program offers the same opportunities for learning and play as the full-day program.
As with the full-day program, children will begin to develop a life-long love of learning, get ready for Kindergarten, and build their cognitive, emotional and social skills. Each day provides the same types of instruction as the full-day program.
Classroom activities will focus on language development, thematic instruction (instruction that combines drawing and reading skills to focus on one theme, like the family), and cognitive and social development. Children can expect to work and play in both small and large groups, both inside the classroom and outdoors.
The half-day program for 4 year olds meets Monday through Friday and follows the school day schedule and the K-8 calendar of South Hills Catholic Academy. The students in the half-day program for 4 year olds depart when the full-day program students go to lunch.
