2019-2020 Opening Letter and School Supplies List

Dear Parents,
 
     I am delighted to welcome you and your child to our Preschool Program. Let's work together to make this a joyous growing experience for your child. 
    Our program is designed to develop awareness and nurturing of each child's precious spirit. Our program recognizes that our Pre-K students are eager learners even though their social, fine and gross motor skills, language and cognitive abilities are not fully developed. This program is also designed to meet the individual needs of the early learner and teach children how to share, socialize and function in a group. The group lays the foundation of faith and guides the children in daily prayer and academic activities designed to prepare them for Pre-K second level.

    A typical Pre-K day entails:
  • Opening exercises (Welcome prayer, Pledge of Allegiance, calendar and weather)
  • Religion (lessons via circle time)
  • Restroom Break
  • Reading/Language (rhymes, little books, big books, oral language development, phonetic awareness activities, auditory discrimination and listening skills, visual discrimination, knowledge of the alphabet, development of writing activities, beginning print and book concepts, comprehension skills, learning center activities)
