Preschool and Elementary

The Preschool and Elementary education conceived by the University of Santo Tomas-Legazpi implements a basic education program that addresses competencies on the basic learning areas especially in Science, Mathematics, Communication and the Arts designed in accordance with the institution’s educational philosophy and mission vision to pursue and maintain quality education. It is competency-based that features thematic conceptual educational programming and constructivist teaching learning strategies.

It aims towards developing pupils who have strong Filipino identity steeped in values of life, love, truth, and gratitude and are excellently prepared to pursue secondary education.

As a whole, the department not only nurtures the mind but also equips pupils with spiritual and moral values which will enable them to live in a manner befitting an educated member of the church and society, thus inculcation of values is integrated in all learning areas.


We envision ourselves to be a premier Dominican Preschool and Elementary department that provides quality education where each pupil demonstrates strong Filipino and Bicolano identity steeped in values of life, love, truth and a commitment to moral and academic excellence in a deregulated university by 2025.


The Preschool and Elementary Department aims to set foundation to educate the young and promote holistic development among pupils towards integral Christian formation in preparation for Secondary Education.
