Preschool

“A child must know that he is a miracle, that since the beginning of the world there hasn’t been, and until the end of the world there will not be, another child like him.”

Pablo Casals

Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Preschool provides a nurturing faith-filled environment for our youngest learners. Since its inception in 1997, our preschool has cultivated an environment that nurtures the whole child.

Our PK-3 and PK-4 programs encourage independence and growth while developing social skills and engaging creativity. All programs offer a wide variety of experiences to engage children and prepare them to be successful, while providing a smooth transition to Kindergarten.

Our students are able to interact with various age groups and participate in many learning activities that inspire creativity and encourage growth in spiritual, academic, social and physical development.

A Typical Preschool Day

While we do provide a structured and consistent learning schedule, we also remain flexible enough to allow for spontaneous learning moments. As events in our day unfold naturally, we shift focus to include them in our curriculum.

The following is an outline of a typical preschool day with a full time teacher and full time class assistant:

  • Convenient, safe drop-off (7:00 a.m. - 7:45 a.m.).
  • School begins with the morning announcements (Star Spangled Banner, Morning prayer, Pledge of Allegiance, Recitement of OLOL Mission Statement and school announcements such as birthdays and activities.).
  • Circle time, alphabet, numbers, weather, calendar, show-and-tell, music and dance, arts and crafts, sharing time.
  • Outdoor/gross motor activity.
  • Nutritious snacks with story time.
  • Learning centers (these continually change and evolve to coincide with developmental stages).
  • Lunch Time in the classroom.
  • Indoor Activity.
  • School day ends with afternoon prayer and announcements.
  • Convenient, safe pick-up (2:45 p.m. -3:00 p.m.).
