Jump Bunch at St. John’s ELC!

There are two Jump Bunch programs at St. John’s this summer – a Full-School program and a Parent-Pay program.  For your child to participate in either program, we must have a signed permission slip on file.

The two programs are on alternating Tuesdays throughout the summer.   Tuition for the Full-School program is paid by St. Johns.  If you would like your child to participate in the additional Parent-Pay program, you will need to pay for that program separately.

The individual fee for the Parent-Pay program is $20 per month, or you can pay for the whole summer for $50.

What We Do!

We are a developmental preschool in Thornton, CO and we encourage preschool age (2 1/2 to 6 years old) children to learn by exploring their environment. The children will be exposed to many different areas of interest during the day which will help them with the ability to make choices. We emphasize sharing, cooperation and good listening skills.

Our focus is on the whole child; mind, body and spirit, thereby promoting the physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development of each child. Our hope is that each child will achieve a great feeling of self worth and build a positive self-image.
