Children are special gifts from God.
Madonna del Sasso Preschool recognizes the parent as the primary educator of the child. The Catholic School, in conjunction with the parent, is the educational setting by which knowledge, culture, and values are developed with the child. The foundation of our educational program is centered in the teachings and examples of Christ and the traditions of our Catholic Faith. The Church and the school share the responsibility of providing a safe, loving, nurturing Catholic environment.
The objective of Madonna del Sasso Preschool is to teach the child confidence in his or her ability to function in a group as well as to develop individual skills. The program provides students with the opportunity for learning through self-directed exploration as well as teacher-guided activities and lessons. The children will be exposed to various age appropriate activities such as coloring, painting, cutting, gluing, and working with manipulatives. Some skills we promote are good listening, memorizing, following directions, motor skill development and a sense of personal responsibility.
