What is your educational philosophy?

Our staff is dedicated to meeting the individual needs of each child in areas of religious, social, emotional, cognitive and physical development while providing a loving and safe environment. Our goals are for each child to learn how to communicate well with others, become well rounded, achieve their full potential, develop a lifetime love for learning, a positive self image and skills to prepare them for Kindergarten and their future education.  All of the academic areas are addressed— language arts, mathematics, music, science, and social studies— in a developmentally appropriate, multisensory rich environment.

How do you teach religion?

Our students experience their faith through meaningful, age-appropriate activities that are curriculum related. Prayers and joyful songs start each day on a happy note. Love and respect of others is always encouraged, helping our students develop kindness and good social skills. Most importantly, the children walk in Jesus’ footsteps as they share with those in need through our social justice projects throughout the year.

What are the days and hours of operation?

We offer a variety of dynamic programs from 2 days, 2 hours to 4 days, 4 hours, Tuesday through Friday, starting at 9:15 am and ending at 1:15 pm.

What age groups can attend the preschool?

We offer programs for children, ages 2 1/2, 3 and 4. Your child must turn 2 1/2, 3 or 4 by October 1st.

Does my child need to be potty trained to attend?

Children in our 2 1/2 year old program may wear diapers or pull-ups. Staff members will change a child when necessary.

Children in all other programs should be fully trained and be able to independently use the toilet facilities and care for themselves. Please advise us if your child needs additional accommodations.  Visiting our restrooms with your child may ease some anxieties.  We suggest that parents of little boys introduce their child to the urinal at the start of the school year.

Do I need to provide snack?

No, daily snacks, which are nut-free and processed in a nut-free facility, are provided by the school.

What kind of snacks are served?

Healthy nut-free snacks are served, including UTZ pretzels, Pepperidge Farm Goldfish, Nabisco Graham Crackers, fresh fruit, milk and filtered water.

How should I dress my child for school?

Children should be dressed in play clothing appropriate for painting, cooking and large muscle activities.  Dress children in weather-appropriate clothing for year-long outdoor play (hats, mittens, etc.). Include a change of clothing (shirt, pants, socks, underwear/ diapers and wipes) in a zip-locked plastic bag and store in your child’s tote bag. Remember to restock when necessary.

What is your student-teacher ratio?

At the 2 1/2 year old level, there are 3 adults to 11 children. For our older age groups, 3-4s and 4-5s, we have 2 adults to 11 children. We never go over 11 children in a class.
