Preschool Program Description
St. Mary of the Lake Preschool (ages 3-5) begins the partnership between families and school by fostering developmentally appropriate learning based on our:
- Philosophy that “play is the work of young children”
- Belief in the essential building blocks for successful learning and living: making choices, solving problems and treating others respectfully
- Use of learning centers to build social, physical and academic skills through hands-on experiences
- Daily prayer and spiritual lessons which build a child’s awareness of God and celebrate His many gifts
