PRE-SCHOOL

We are pleased to announce that we will be adding a 2nd full time prekindergarten classroom for the 2018-2019 school year.

We currently have openings in our full-time program as well as our part-time program.

Philosophy

St. Michael Preschool’s Prekindergarten curriculum is aligned to the State of Ohio’s Early Learning Content Standards using the framework of D.I.G.. Develop. Inspire. Grow., also used by the Diocese of Columbus. The D.I.G. curriculum is a comprehensive, hands-on, and developmentally-appropriate program that uses the Letter People phonics puppets; Dr. Jean Feldman’s cheers, chants, active movements; and interactive Math, Science, and Social Studies with a balance between instructional skills and play. This program helps educators create high-quality programs that meet the unique needs of the children and families they serve. In an atmosphere where the practice of virtue and of independence are promoted, our program is designed to guide the spiritual, intellectual, physical, and emotional development of the child. St. Michael’s drive towards academic excellence will help children be ready for Kindergarten by the end of the term.

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

The St. Michael Preschool utilizes the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.  This religious education program takes place in a special room called an Atrium. In the Atrium a child is given the opportunity to develop the spiritual potential that every child has for God. In the Atrium children are given the opportunity to fall in love with God through encountering Jesus the Good Shepherd with different hands on experiences of our faith.

Staff:

Preschool Director/Prekindergarten Lead Teacher: Mrs. Laura Wells
PreKindergarten Lead Teacher: Miss Anna Bright
PreKindergarten Assists: Mrs. Mary Ann Scholl, Mrs.Suzie Zelinski
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd: Mrs. Christine Moore
