Welcome to the CYO Pre-School! We look forward to helping your child prepare for Kindergarten by showing him/her the necessary tools to explore, discover, make new friends, and become self reliant. The importance of a good preschool experience cannot be stressed enough. We now know through scientific research that three and four year old children have an enormous capacity to learn and develop. If this capacity is not stimulated during these years, children miss a critical opportunity. A quality preschool program can help children to develop reading, writing and math foundations as well as social skills that prepare them for later success in school and in life.
The CYO Pre-School in Trenton became nationally accredited in 2005 by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). NAEYC-accredited programs have demonstrated a commitment to providing a high quality program for young children and their families. While the NAEYC accreditation process examines the total program, greatest emphasis is placed on the quality of interactions among staff and children and the developmental appropriateness of the curriculum—what really happens to the children. Health and safety, staffing, staff qualifications, physical environment, and administration are all reviewed during accreditation, but primary consideration is given to the nature of the child’s experience.

Help foster positive self-concept; Help develop social skills; Encourage children to think, reason, question and experiment; Enhance physical development; Encourage and demonstrate sound health, safety & nutritional practices; Encourage creative expression and appreciation for the arts; Respect cultural diversity.

The CYO Pre-School Strives to offer a very safe, loving and supportive environment for all of our children. Within our center, we will provide an atmosphere for developing the total child- socially, physically, emotionally and intellectually. Of course, we will keep foremost in our minds, the fact that every child is an individual and he/she will be allowed to develop at his own pace. We believe that children learn best.

by exploring concepts through hands-on activities through long blocks of uninterrupted play.

We believe that “readiness” for elementary schooling is based on play. Children play with important math concepts as they set a table, counting to be certain there are as many place settings as children, or discover what happens when apples are divided evenly among eight children. Counting to twenty and recognizing numbers are also important skills, but an understanding of the concept comes through play. Children play with the concepts of reading and writing by pretending to make books, even though many of the marks they make do not yet resemble letters or collections of letters do not spell words. By dictating their own stories or messages to an adult who will write them down and read them back, children learn that their words are important and can be permanently recorded. Children play with sequence by retelling favorite stories and acting them out. Reciting the alphabet and writing letters correctly are skills adults recognize but these are only part of the process.
