Pre-K and Early Childhood
Childcare: 6 Weeks-6 Years | 3K & 4K Childcare
Pacelli Catholic Schools Tim Copps Early Childhood Center offers a licensed childcare program that allows children to learn social skills in a safe and loving environment. By promoting spiritual, cognitive, and physical development each child has the opportunity to engage in activities that are geared to their interests while challenging them at their individual ability level. 3K & 4K childcare is also offered at the PCS Early Childhood Center and at PCES-St. Bron’s for students enrolled in our preschool programs.
Pacelli Catholic Schools offer a well-established and innovative preschool program with a Catholic emphasis for children ages 3-4. The program is taught by highly qualified staff at Pacelli Catholic Elementary School-St. Bronislava in Plover and at the Pacelli Catholic Schools Tim Copps Early Childhood Center in Stevens Point. Low student/teacher ratios and classroom aides allow teachers to focus on faith development, literacy, social and readiness skills.
Pacelli Catholic Elementary School-St. Bronislava in Plover and at the Pacelli Catholic Schools Tim Copps Early Childhood Center in Stevens Point offer 4 Year-Old Kindergarten (4K) as part of the Stevens Point Area Public School District. The program follows the Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards which specify developmentally appropriate expectations for children. The standards address a child’s health and physical development, social and emotional development, language development and communication skills, and cognition and general knowledge. By using these standards as a guide, the programs are all able to utilize a play-based exploration model that is child initiated.
The mission of the 4K program is to provide equal access to high quality early childhood education and learning experiences for all children.
