Kindergarten

Seton Catholic School provides an All-Day Kindergarten. All-Day Kindergarten follows regular school hours of 8:15 am - 3:15 pm. The Kindergarten Program is located at Culemans Hall, 17th Ave. and 14th St. Moline on the Seton Catholic School Campus

Registration, information, and visitation arrangements are to be requested through the school secretary. The Seton Catholic Elementary School phone number is (309) 757-5500. The Kindergarten Round Up is held in March of every year.

The Kindergarten Program is an essential part of a child's educational experience. During Kindergarten, a foundation for learning is developed. Academically, there is emphasis on basic skills in reading, writing, and mathematics. In reading, students are taught phonemic awareness, phonics, and comprehension skills. Students write using their developing letter-sound skills. In mathematics, students work with counting, the concepts of addition, subtraction, patterns, and comparing. Communication skills, such as listening and expressing ideas, are also taught.

Lessons are individually planned to address a wide range of children's developmental levels and needs. Kindergarteners also enjoy weekly art, music, and physical education classes, as well as working in the computer lab.

An important part of our Kindergarten Program is the social development of each child. It is our aim to see that children feel good about themselves, develop positive and constructive relationships with both peers and adults, learn to handle feelings in acceptable ways, and function appropriately as part of a group.

Our goal is to provide a balanced program where all children are provided an opportunity to develop at their own rate by observing, doing, discovering, listening, sharing, and creating. Emphasis is placed on understanding what is expected, making choices, and solving problems throughout the school year and accepting responsibility for their actions.

Our Kindergarten philosophy is to provide a loving and caring environment that enhances the spiritual, cognitive, social, emotional and physical development of every child through active participation. Learning is a process that each child masters at his or her own developmental pace. It is our goal to work with you to provide your child with a love for learning.
