Preschool

Sacred Heart Preschool Mission

Learning begins from the first day of life. Our purpose is to provide each child with a stimulating environment that will encourage this process and meet the developmental needs of the whole child.

Our goals focus on the physical, cognitive, and spiritual well being of the children in our program. We are concerned not only with the health and safety of the children, but also with the development of a positive self-image.

Through our program, we encourage each child to develop:

  • A sense of belonging

  • The capacity to trust people and feel secure with others when away from home

  • A curiosity about the world, to take pleasure in learning and exploring by promoting sensory awareness through the many gifts, talents, and abilities that God has provided

  • Independence

  • A positive sense of oneself and sense of control over one's own behavior

  • An ability to comprehend language and events and to express one's self

Curriculum

The school encourages each child to explore the world around them by exposing him/her to a variety of experiences and mediums that help to develop emotional, social, cognitive, spiritual, gross, and fine motor skills.

  • Activities in math help each child to count and recognize numbers, shapes, and sizes.

  • Language Arts includes dramatic play, storytelling, puppets, rhymes, fingerplays, expressing thoughts and feelings, and recognizing letters/sounds.

  • Various art materials are used to encourage creativity and the development of fine motor skills, including development of writing skills and color recognition.

  • Music is used throughout the program for enjoyment, as well as to increase listening and following directions skills.

  • Children explore the realm of science by studying the weather, learning how plants and animals grow, and how the world around us moves.

  • By developing an understanding of community helpers, his/her family, and friendships, each child begins to grow in their awareness of the world around them.
