Early Childhood Programs

The Office of Teaching and Learning, Pre-Kindergarten Program is responsible for providing support and education for staff and families to ensure high-quality education for children the year before Kindergarten to prepare them for school success. Our mission is to ensure lasting achievement for all early learners.

About the Pre-Kindergarten Program

The Pre-Kindergarten Program (Pre-K) aims to:

  • improve the school readiness of St. Paul children;
  • offer a rigorous academic approach; and
  • help prevent St. Paul’s achievement gap.

Pre-K is aligned with the district's K-12 standards-based instructional model.  The Office of Teaching and Learning ensures standards-based curriculum and assessments guide the program to continuously improve performance and quality.

Pre-K provides a rigorous academic preschool education for children.  Classes focus on teaching children to:

  • see themselves as capable learners;
  • develop reading, writing and math skills; and
  • work well with other children and adults.

Up to 20 children are enrolled in each class with a licensed teacher and an assistant. Children are enrolled for full day, full school year programming.
