Little Lancer Preschool

Little Lancer Preschool at SJCA

In the Little Lancer Preschool, our 3- and 4-year old students will participate in all academic subject areas that are developmentally appropriate for early learners. At this level, our certified teachers nurture each child’s unique gifts in a supportive and loving environment.  Our teachers instill in the children a sense of intellectual purpose while guiding them to turn interests into learning and facts into knowledge.

In the classroom, children engage in meaningful educational experiences that promote independence, the joy of discovery and a love of learning. Whether they are counting money, sounding out words, practicing their Spanish or working with technology, our youngest scholars are happy, secure and gaining the skills needed to flourish in Elementary School and beyond.
