Pre-Kindergarten 3 Year Old Program

Our Pre-Kindergarten 3 year old classroom is designed for three year old children. In our room, we use the portions of "Handwriting Without Tears" preschool program to help prepare our children for Kindergarten. Each day we listen to a story, sing songs, and practice letter/sound recognition. Weekly, children are engaged in pre-reading, writing, math, and science activities and to help build their understanding and ease their transition to a four year old program. We encourage social play and help children foster loving relationships within their new school community. With weekly religion lessons, coupled with daily prayer, children will learn about God and the love that He has for him/her. Together, we will work to best meet your child's individual needs!

Pre-Kindergarten 4 Year Old Program

The Pre-Kindergarten 4 year old program focuses on Kindergarten preparation and school readiness skills, allowing each child to develop cognitively, spiritually, socially, emotionally, and physically.This is accomplished through a balance of play based activities and group instruction based on the guidelines set forth by the Archdiocese of Boston and the Common Core.  We utilize the OWL curriculum program along with teacher created lessons to assure that each student is progressing at a developmentally appropriate pace that is individualized according to skill level.
