About St. Lawrence

The St. Lawrence Early Childhood Center houses preschool, year-round childcare, and is a host site for WRPS 4K program. From birth to five years old, children learn most of the things they need to know in their lives. Our center works to meet the needs of young families. We view children as a precious resource, given by God, and acknowledge our responsibility, along with parents for their care and nurture in a safe, secure Catholic/Christian environment. We are state-licensed and accredited with the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

Guidance

The Elementary Schools guidance program uses a “primary prevention” approach in order to prevent minor problems from developing into major ones. The approach is based on the fact that all children are unique individuals and have numerous strengths from which they can draw as they attempt to cope with the many challenges of growing up.

 

Even small children have frustrations and problems, which occasionally seem overwhelming. For this reason, individual and small group sessions with the guidance counselor are available .

Curriculum

In partnership with the family, we strive to educate the whole child, making gospel values central to our teaching. We help our children integrate Christian truths and values into their lives.

With this in mind, the curriculum is theme-based and a combination of early childhood resources, such as: The Creative Curriculum, Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards, books, workshops, shared ideas and original ideas.
