Preschool

 

St. Edward Preschool is committed to providing our students with an excellent academic and spiritual foundation in a safe, nurturing and caring environment. Children learn through an engaging teacher-led curriculum and play-based exploration. We strive to instill the Catholic faith and impart strong Christian values as children experience God’s love.

Our Core Values

Living the Faith

We embrace the teachings of Jesus Christ by modeling for the students, families and each other spirituality, stewardship, charity and compassion.                                                           

We will teach the Catholic faith and hope to be inspired by the Holy Spirit as we grow in our faith.

We acknowledge the diversity of others and their thoughts or beliefs.

We want to be alive in our faith, so we understand, practice and live our Catholic faith.

Curriculum Objectives

To ensure that children and staff develop at their best potential through activities and lessons that are challenging to their skills and promote a confident self-image.

To provide an emotionally and physically safe environment for children as they progress through learning stages at their own pace in a positive atmosphere.

We will provide exploration through play-based learning and teacher-facilitated lessons to help children become life-long learners. 

We will provide an effective method of evaluation through observation and assessment that is responsive to developmentally appropriate practices and principles.   

Community

We are dedicated to raising distinguished leaders by teaching good moral and Christian values that exhibit how each person deserves respect, celebrates diversity and fosters an environment of inclusion.

We recognize that parents are the first teachers of their child, so we will collaborate with families to set goals that will best serve the child. 

We will communicate openly and honestly to help build community and achieve common goals with our students, parents, faculty and larger parish community.

We will always strive to make sound business decisions through our faculty and Board of Directors, so that we can continue to provide an exceptional school for all who come to learn and work.
