In pre-kindergarten we harness the natural curiosity of young children to engage students in play-based learning.  Pre-kindergarten engrosses students in learning through hands-on activities, and often incorporates subjects such as art and music to make lessons memorable and engaging.

We help cultivate a desire for literacy through exposure to a wide range of high quality literature. Our center-based approach to math creates a strong mathematical foundation in students through working in small groups with individual assistance.

Most importantly God’s grace, mercy and role as creator is evident, not only in our curriculum, but in our goal to teach students the way they were designed to learn. At this stage of development teaching children the way they learn means movement, memorization, singing, chanting and hands on exposure. Teachers strive to cultivate an atmosphere of respect, love and grace that is honoring to our faith.
