Program

     Our pre-school program is designed to help the children know of God and His presence in all of creation.  Age appropriate prayers and worship experiences enable the little child to respond to God’s goodness. The children are introduced to a balanced program of interaction with friends in both teacher-directed and child-directed experiences.  The daily schedule includes free choice of time spent in the learning centers, group times for creative movement, music, storytelling, dramatization, and technology.

The program is geared toward helping children develop habits of observation, questioning, and listening.  Children are treasured for their uniqueness and individuality and are encouraged toward self-expression.  Such an open-minded program prepares children to utilize their intellectual and creative abilities for future learning tasks.

Our program is child-centered and based upon the belief that play is the best way for children to learn.  Our approach is individualized to meet each child’s needs and interests.  Each classroom is organized with centers for creative art, literature, science and pre-math, dramatic play, and cognitive and small motor development.   These centers are planned to encourage a reenactment of life’s roles.  The environment is planned to stimulate imagination and creativity, socialization, and exploration and discovery, while challenging the use of muscles important to developing bodies.

Our environment is in a section of Marian Hall, which is designed to reflect a beautiful world for the young child.
