About Our
Pre-K / CGS Program

Joy-Filled Learning and Play

It is our sincere hope to provide a joyful experience for your children. We want to assist you with developing in them a spirit of wonder for the things of God’s complex world while they learn to play and work with one another. Together we will lead them toward the end for which they were created – eternal happiness in Heaven.

Pre-K is Customizable to Fit Your Family:

  • 3 to 5 years old
  • 2 day, 3 day, or 5 day
  • Full or half school day

 

Our Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program takes place on Wednesdays from 8:00-10:00 a.m. and is included with Wednesday morning Pre-K enrollment. CGS is also available as a stand-alone experience.

More About Our Pre-K Program

The goal of Holy Angels Academy’s Pre-K program is to provide a joy-filled environment for learning and play which will develop in your child, not only a sense of wonder, but a desire to become a virtuous person. To this end, our Pre-K schooling will consist basically of two parts:

  1. Time will be devoted to traditional preschool activities which will serve to stimulate the senses by way of storytelling, art, music and play. Various learning centers will be provided. Outdoor play will be included at various times.
  2. The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is based on the Montessori Method which fosters a certain freedom for children to pursue interests while developing self-control. The Atrium itself is designed with materials and activities which help the children develop a love for Christ and His Church. The children learn and appreciate their Catholic Faith by way of “hands-on” involvement. For example, a child may use a miniature size prayer table, bible, chalice, chasuble or baptism shell – to name only a few items.

Our hope is that our little boys and girls, who have been created in the image and likeness of God, begin to grow into healthy and flourishing human beings.
