The preschool curriculum is based upon the Arkansas Frameworks for three and four year old children.

We offer a well-balanced program focusing on the spiritual, academic, social and physical development of each child in a Christ-centered environment.

  • Religious formation is taught daily with preschoolers attending weekly Mass each Friday beginning in November with our elementary school children at 8:15 a.m. The fourth and fifth graders are the preschooler’s buddies during Mass and other events throughout the year.
  • Our preschoolers experience a thematic based literary curriculum with an emphasis in math preparation to help make the transition from preschool to kindergarten smoother.
  • Children are exposed to science and social studies lessons.
  • They participate in art, music, Spanish, physical education, technology, as well as, visiting the school library for story time.
  • The children experience guided activities, free-choice play with several centers and a wide variety of hands-on materials to discover.
