Early Childhood Program


The Summer Early Childhood Program takes full advantage of St. Matthew’s beautiful park-like setting. Carefully designed activities and a generous teacher-student ratio provide for the young child’s enjoyment, growth, and safety at all times. The summer program provides a comfortable transition between the child’s familiar program of the past year and the new challenge of the year to come.  At both levels, adventures in Science, Cooking, Music, Movement, Art, Language Arts, and Math encourage the children to explore, to discover, to learn, and to have fun! 
 
The Preschool Summer Program concentrates on making the transition from the toddler classroom to the Preschool classroom. Special emphasis is given to personal-social development and communication skills. If this is your child’s first group experience, we strongly encourage that his or her enrollment be during the first three weeks (June 15 - July 2) or during the full five-week session (June 15 - July 16).
 
To be eligible for the Preschool Summer Program, children need to be 3 years of age by August 1, 2020. The program is not staffed or furnished to handle diaper changing. Thus, Preschool students in the summer program need to be reliable about taking care of their own toileting needs. If parents have concerns or questions about readiness to participate in St. Matthew’s Preschool Program, please contact Dana Berlin, Principal, Grades PS-4, at 310.454.1350 ext. 137.
 
The Pre-K Summer Program aims to enhance and expand a four and five-year-old’s previous school experience. Activities will be centered around meaningful, seasonal themes.  Pre-K students have the option of attending Summer Session in the morning from 8:45 - 11:30, or they can extend their Pre-K adventures into the afternoon and join us for a Full Day program from 8:45 - 2:00.
 
To participate in the Pre-K Summer Program, children need to have had one year’s experience in a preschool program. Additionally, children must be 4 years of age by August 1, 2020.
