The moment I walked into the school, I knew that this was the perfect place for children. I could hear laughter, smell play dough, and instantly felt at home. Nestled next to St. Jude's Church, Blairstown is blessed to have such a nurturing and loving place for our children to go.
St. Jude Giving Tree Preschool welcomes children into an environment where they are cared for, happy, and surrounded by endless opportunities to learn. Classroom programs are offered for children ranging in age from 2 ½ to 6 years old. Each program is crafted with the whole child in mind and focuses on a mixture of social, emotional, intellectual, and motor skill sets. In addition, the Handwriting Without Tears program is incorporated in the preschool’s developmentally appropriate curriculum.
Our preschool staff gives off a warm atmosphere where the children feel as if they are with a second family, and get to spend their days in a home away from home. With plenty of experience behind them, the teachers and teacher assistants spend their days with the children getting on their level and experiencing the world through their eyes. They facilitate opportunities for the children to have hands on exploration, active learning through play, and experiences relevant to them as individuals. St. Jude Giving Tree Preschool strives to cater to its families’ changing needs, and grows along with them. The school is excited with the opportunity coming in June to offer a new full time care option for their hard-working families. The Giving Tree family is confident in knowing that every opportunity is being given for their child to learn, play, make friends, and be ready for their journey into Kindergarten.
