The underlying instruction strategy at our Catholic school offers a unique balance between teacher-guided and open-ended learning opportunities. The combination of this organized and free-play approach is intended to provide opportunities for your child to interact, explore, and relate successfully to his or her environment. 
The Pre-K program uses a multi-sensory hands-on learning approach to teach fine motor skills, auditory and visual learning using center time, books, songs, technology, and art. Free play, story time, prayer time, music, crafts, and outdoor play fill the students’ day. Children participate in the Catechist of the Good Shepherd program and engage with 6th grade buddies for activities throughout the year.

We strive to ensure that we provide the foundation rooted in the Gospel message and rich in traditions and liturgical practices of our Catholic faith. Parents are confident in knowing their children are being educated in a comfortable, nurturing, and faith filled environment which provides an educational curriculum that allows children to achieve their highest potential.
