Our Pre-Kindergarten Program

Attention Parents!
Under the new CT state law, children must be 3 years old on or before September 1 in order to register for our 2024–2025 PreK 3 program, and 4 years old on or before September 1 to attend our 2024–2025 PreK 4 program. This is a state law, and St. Rita School cannot make any exceptions.

St. Rita School welcomes you to what we hope will be the best beginning possible. The purpose and objective of the St. Rita School Pre-Kindergarten Program is to provide three and four-year-old children with a developmentally appropriate program designed to stimulate and nurture their spiritual, intellectual, social, and emotional growth, relative to each child’s unique personality and learning ability. The program provides opportunities for learning in a loving and caring environment where children can explore, discover, question, and succeed.

Children must be fully toilet trained. This includes being able to handle all bathroom needs (wiping, cleansing, pulling up/down pants, etc.) without assistance. Please no diapers or pull-ups.

In the three-year-old program, the primary focus is to welcome the children, build self-esteem, foster a positive interest in learning, and develop social skills that will prepare them for the four-year-old program.

The goal for children attending the four-year-old program is to acquire the learning and social skills that will prepare them for successful transition into kindergarten.

Both the three-year-old program and the four-year-old program provide large group, small group, and individual instruction.

The St. Rita School Pre-Kindergarten Program follows the educational standards set forth by the Archdiocese of Hartford, Office of Catholic Schools.

For the coming 2023–2024 school year, our pre-kindergarten program offers three-year-old children a full or half-day program either three days a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) or five days a week. Four-year-old children can enroll in either a full or half-day program five days a week. If you are interested in receiving further information and/or scheduling a tour of the school, please give us a call at (203) 248-3114 or send your contact information through email. We look forward to welcoming you.
