St. Angela Merici Preschool

The mission and goals of the St. Angela Merici Preschool are to:

  • Guide children in recognizing God's presence in everyday life experiences.

  • Help children develop the skills needed to interact with others; work toward a common goal; cope with conflict; and express feelings.

  • Expose children to a large variety of books, stories, and writing experiences to develop early literacy skills.

  • Provide children with a wide range of activities that promote effective communication.

  • Stimulate children to utilize reasoning in problem solving.

The Preschool program maintains a very desirable (low) teacher/child ratio to encourage individualized instruction, and all of our classrooms are large, bright, and inviting.
