Preschool – All day options for 3 & 4 year olds

Our mission is to provide a faith based, early childhood program that promotes social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development. We do this through a combination of teacher-directed and child-centered learning in a play-based learning environment.

We believe children learn best…..

  • when they feel physically and emotionally safe and secure;
  • when they have opportunities to work individually as well as in small and
  • large groups; when they feel self-confident;
  • and when activities are developmentally appropriate for each child’s unique learning style.

Our curriculum components include:
—Get Set for School: a flexible, play-based curriculum that offers a full pre-writing program and materials that build critical skills such as early math and literacy
—Zoo-phonics: a fun and playful program to introduce the children to the sounds and letters of the alphabet
—Catechesis of the Good Shepherd: a Montessori based program to foster children’s love for Jesus through scripture, liturgy, and prayer

Morning Preschool:

Our morning preschool programs employ child centered and teacher directed activities to promote social/emotional development, cognitive development, and motor skill development that correlate with the State of Michigan and the Diocese of Grand Rapids standards of Early Childhood Development. Components of Creative Curriculum and Learning without Tears will be utilized during morning instruction. Children that attend our morning preschool programs will also have the opportunity to participate in daily Spanish instruction and Catechesis of the Good Shepherd- a Montessori based religion education program.

Our afternoon preschool programs offer enrichment opportunities to extend the day and to further each child’s development. The Tuesday/Thursday afternoon Creativity and Movement enrichment program will focus on physical (small and large motor) development and fostering creativity through art, music, dance, and dramatic play. The Monday/Wednesday/Friday afternoon Learning through Play enrichment program will focus on promoting literacy, math, and science skills through hands-on materials, play, and exploration.
