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.

Summer Fun Activity

St. Michael Prekindergarten would like to announce that we have an exciting opportunity for Summer Fun Activities!

Here is a sample of our Activity Grid you will receive once a week if you wish to participate. The Summer Fun Activity Grid has interactive videos and activities your preschooler ages 3 to 5 can enjoy during the week. Older school age children may also enjoy the activities with simple changes. For example, an alphabet game where you squirt the alphabet letters with the hose can be changed to “sight word” hose squirting.  

Also, we rely on parent feedback and can cater the lessons to the demographic of participants. For example, if we receive a large amount of 1st graders and three year olds, we might offer specific activities for those age groups. There is a spot on the online registration form where you can indicate the age of your child (optional). Most of the Summer Fun Activities are easy, interactive, and frequently outdoor activities.

The small fee of $40 gives you the entire 11 weekly Activity Grids of Summer Fun Activities from June 1 through August 17 which will be emailed to you once a week on Mondays. Here are the weekly themes we will cover:

If you are interested in receiving fun Summer Activities once a week via email, please:

1.  Complete the online form found here: Summer Fun Activities

2. Create an account on FACTS (if you don’t already have one): FACTS (tuition management company).  $40 will then be charged to your FACTS account for the Summer Fun Activities.

 

We look forward to providing fun and exciting educational activities through the summer. 

 

Stay safe and God bless you,

Mrs. Wells
