St. Catherine’s prides itself on the excellence of its teaching staff. All teachers have or are working towards their Early Childhood Education (ECE) accreditation, and most have post basic i.e. infant/toddler and special needs as well as First Aid Certificates. Professional Development is a priority at St. Catherine’s and the staff continue to update their skills by attending workshops and seminars to be on the cutting edge of ECE trends.
We offer an above average teacher/child ratio of 2 fully qualified teachers to every 20 children in our three and four year old program. The two year old Discovery program, with a maximum of 16 children per class, boasts a ratio of 1 fully qualified teacher to each 4 children.
Most importantly our team is a fun-loving and caring group of professionals who enjoy teaching your children.
Development Resource Teacher
Our Development Resource Teacher is available to assist teachers in identifying when children may need either a challenge in the program or extra support to meet their developmental goals and milestones. Please contact Marion Porter for more information.
Each three and four year-old class participates in a weekly half-hour music class in small groups of 10 children. Our teaching method incorporates nursery rhymes, songs and musical concepts. Speech, song, movement and instruments give young children an excellent foundation for future musical development.
