The Our Lady of Peace Pre-School is a wonderful part of our school family with an outstanding reputation. The program provides opportunities to help preschoolers develop a stronger, balanced foundation for spiritual, academic, and social skills. With parents and school as partners, it serves as a transition from home to school. A loving and caring atmosphere will prevail.
Our program includes: Religion/Self Esteem; Health & Safety; Reading Readiness; Field Trips; Math Readiness; Show & Tell/Sharing; Science Awareness; Music; Social Skills; Art; Motor Coordination; Group Play; Computer Skills and iPad applications; and Free Play.
The NCEA Early Childhood recommendations are followed.
Opportunities for joining with grade school students for such activities as assemblies, Christmas and Spring Show are available, and add to that family and Christian community atmosphere.
