The Preschool Program at Holy Family Catholic School is designed to provide a gradual, progressive, and coordinated process of learning for three year old children. All students must be 3 years of age by September 1st and toilet trained (fully self sufficient).
Our main goal is to provide days filled with productive and fun activities that help each individual child develop spiritually, socially, intellectually, emotionally, and physically. We strive to provide a positive, nurturing, educational environment in which young children feel safe, loved, and free to experiment with various materials and tools according to their individual interests. We explore the wonders of God’s world around us, and foster meaningful interpersonal relationships within our class and school.
Through stories, play, and many creative activities, the children learn to think, solve problems, express emotions, expand their language, and strengthen fine motor control. Important math and literacy skills are introduced in small group settings with many opportunities provided for children to practice these important foundational skills. As they master the many milestones needed for future success in school, and in life, including crucial social-emotional development, their self-esteem grows. We work in partnership with the parents to enable each child to become an integrated Christian person who has the ability to achieve and transfer learning into real life situations.
Our preschool has adopted the practices of Conscious Discipline. Conscious Discipline is a comprehensive classroom management program and a social-emotional curriculum. It is based on current brain research, child development information, and developmentally appropriate practices. We believe that by using daily conflicts to teach character development, social skills, conflict resolution and self control, teachers are able to integrate social, emotional and academic learning into one seamless curriculum.
Upon successful completion of the three year old program, children continue at Holy Family Catholic School in the full day four year old program.
Holy Family Catholic School (PK3-8th grade), is accredited by the Florida Catholic Conference.
