About the Provider

Description: St. Catherine Preschool Located in the Stanley Centre Opening Fall of 2012. The school will be offering Catechesis of the Good Shepherd as our Theology curriculum. The child is seen as the guide, and their relationship with God is nurtured by the teacher. The focus is on Christ as the teacher. Lessons are taught in a simple yet engaging manner. The children are encouraged to work with the simple materials and through this interaction they are able to open their hearts to God's word and better grasp the meaning of the biblical or liturgical theme. The school will also be incorporating a theme based curriculum in the preschool. A broad theme is presented each week then the children are guided through teacher led activities as well as child led activities. They connect their learning to the real world. With the introduction of each theme the areas of science, math, reading, writing, and art are taught in the context of real world experiences. The children will be allowed time to "play" in their peer-to-peer interactions which will enhance their social skills while allowing them time to acquire knowledge and oral language skills. The children will be actively engaged in learning through the preschool environment. The children will be attending daily Mass 2 times a month in the Trinity Chapel. There will be one lead teacher and a co-teacher in every class.
