KINDERGARTEN

Overview:

Our all-day kindergarten strives and maintains a healthy, well-rounded educational atmosphere based on the teachings of Jesus.  Our curriculum combines play-learning situations with academic readiness to ensure physical, intellectual, emotional, and social maturation in a Christian atmosphere of caring and respect.
Our program is based on the Diocesan and State curriculum standards.  Children receive instruction in religion, reading, mathematics, handwriting, communication skills, social studies, science, health, music, art, physical education, and computer.  Our day-to-day experiences encourage the children to be responsible and independent learners.
Kindergarten follows the State of Ohio Common Core Standards in addition to the Diocesan Office of Education. Our grade develops the children's social skills along with fine and gross motor skills.
