Saint John the Evangelist Preschool is operated by Saint John the Evangelist School and is affiliated with Saint John the Evangelist Parish. Saint John Preschool is accredited by the Virginia Catholic Education Association.
Our preschool program promotes each child’s spiritual, emotional, intellectual, physical, and social growth. The curriculum is organized in a sequential manner that follows a theme or unit.
The aim of the preschool is to make each learning activity developmentally appropriate, challenging and a multi-sensory experience. We encourage activity. The children of Saint John Preschool are exposed to many concepts, but our focus is on appealing learning activities and creativity.
