St. Angela Merici Preschool

The Mission and Goals of the St. Angela Merici Preschool are to:

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

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

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

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

  • Stimulate the child to utilize reasoning in problem solving.

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