A Whole New World

Our kindergarten program lets children explore, play and imagine. Designed to lead students from wonder to discovery, our program helps them associate learning with pleasure and fulfillment. Focus is on the process rather than the product. Hands-on projects introduce activities and materials to help children acquire sensory, motor, perceptual and language skills. The curriculum, within an age-appropriate framework, is adaptable to children’s varying needs and interests.

Daily Religion Lessons


Students are encouraged to love one another as God loves them.  Strong character formation is developed through lessons on character traits.

  • Formal Prayers
  • Attend bi-monthly mass

Reading and Writing


Students develop an understanding of letters and sounds.  This will be beneficial when learning sight words and the formation of other words:

  • Sight words

Math
