St. George's Episcopal Preschool is a top quality, three star rated preschool, as assessed by the Tennessee Department of Human Services under their Star Quality rating system.
The Preschool accepts children who are 15 months old by August 15th of the current year through children who are 5 years old. We also offer a Parent's Day Out program for babies - 6 months to 14 months.
We now have five age groups: Babies, Toddlers, Twos, Threes, and Fours.
Each age group has a structured day that includes: free play, group time, indoor/outdoor play, snack, art, music program (Monday and Tuesday), chapel (Wednesday and Thursday), Spanish, lunch, and nap.
In the toddler and two-year-old classes, teachers follow weekly themes to introduce concepts such as shapes and colors in English and Spanish. Our main goal in these classes is to help the children enjoy learning in a group setting. We work on skills such as taking turns, sharing, separating from parents, and following directions that are the foundation for future school and life success.
In the three- and four-year-old classes, we continue extending the social and emotional skills learned in the younger rooms, and add more academic skills. In these rooms we begin letter recognition and pre-writing (3’s), letter sounds and writing(4’s), as well as science experiments, math, and Spanish.
