The year 2021 signals the promise of new and unexpected blessings, and here at St. Joseph’s, this January brings the launch of an exciting opportunity long in the making: our 2K program.
Last March, families were faced with many trials in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are proud of how our community united in faith to keep our children both challenged and safe; in-person and online. In turn, we observed a prevailing need for a program to nurture our youngest—who deserve the chance to learn and socialize safely as we navigate different working environments and reluctantly distance ourselves from those we love.
We created our 2K program to give growing minds the earliest and best possible first impression of school in a familial environment. Our early childhood education programs provide a caring space with highly qualified faculty and staff to welcome those two or older into a faith-based education that is affordable and inclusive of families’ fluctuating needs.
St. Joseph’s Catholic Church parishioner Laura Johnson is ecstatic to join our family of innovative educators as our first 2K teacher. Originally from upstate New York, Mrs. Johnson grew up surrounded by a large, Catholic family with many young cousins, an experience that convinced her to pursue early childhood education at Buffalo State College, and again for her Master of Education at Kennesaw State University. Her goal is to enrich our new two-year-old class with values that will help them become lifelong learners and followers of Christ.
We believe that strong foundations should be built early. In our 2K program, we foster principles that cultivate community leaders and engaged citizens. Using multi-sensory approaches that appeal to a variety of learning styles, we prepare our students for the world with a rigorous academic curriculum.
St. Joseph’s School is conveniently located in downtown Macon, Georgia, in close proximity to Atrium Health Navicent, Mercer University, and Wesleyan College. Our campus has nearly 150 years of rich history as a Catholic educational institution. Read more about how we serve Middle Georgia families here: www.sjsmacon.org
