St. Peter’s has operated a preschool and pre-k program in the Smyrna community since September of 1994. The programs follow the academic year aligned with the Smyrna School District. In order to ensure quality development for the children we serve, St. Peter’s participates in the Delaware Institute of Excellence in Early Childhood Education at the University of Delaware. We value being an active member of the Smyrna community.
sThe vision of St. Peter’s Preschool is to provide a well-planned program and a safe environment that engages children led by certified staff who are warm, nurturing, and can adapt to a variety of children’s needs. We believe the work we do with children is foundational and matters because it shapes the minds of children and the future of our community. Success with this work gives a sense of pride and accomplishment. We are supported by an advisory board who recognizes the collective achievements from the staff and enjoys recognizing the little things done to create an enthusiastic workplace. The vision of the program is also one that will lead into the future by keeping up with current research and best practices in early childhood education.
The Creative Curriculum for preschool uses developmentally appropriate practices to match the way children develop and learn in order to promote an optimal learning environment. The Creative Curriculum provides expanded content for supporting dual language learning and includes teacher resource volumes for math and literacy. It defines and incorporates thirty-eight objectives for development learning that are predictors of school success and are aligned to the Delaware Early Learning Foundations and Common Core standards.
St. Peter’s utilizes The Creative Curriculum in our classroom with the teacher supplementing the curriculum in their unique way to enhance the learning process. When joining our friends at St. Peter’s Preschool, your child and family will explore and celebrate through Grandparents’ Day, Superhero Dad Day, Mom and Me Tea, the Christmas show and graduation.
