Young 5's at St. John Lutheran School serves as a bridge year between Preschool 4's and Kindergarten. The program is for the student who has completed Preschool 4's and is either not yet age-ready for Kindergarten or who also may benefit emotionally, socially, academically an physically from an additional year of instruction. Students in Young 5's learn in a hands-on, interactive way that supports their development while still maintaining the rigor and high standards of success.
There are a maximum of 18 students with a teacher and an aide, offering an excellent student to teacher ratio. Five-day morning and five-day full day options are available, as well as an option to extend from morning to full day.
Full day Young 5's students may order lunch from our hot lunch program, and Young 5's students living in the RCS district are eligible for free bus transportation (morning and afternoon only; no mid-day transportation). A Preschool & Young 5's before and after care room is available.
