 Monsignor Gadoury Pre-Kindergarten Program

Program Goals

The program’s goals are to enhance social and emotional development and self-help skills, while preparing the children for a smooth transition into kindergarten. This is achieved through the creation of a “learn through play” environment, which is centered around monthly themes focusing on religion, language arts development, pre-math, pre-science, cognition, music, art, and dramatic play. Hands-on activity is a primary learning tool, used to help the children develop positive self-image and self-expression. The maximum class size is 20 for four-year olds and 18 for three-year olds.

Program Options

Our Pre-K Program is directed towards children who turn three and four years of age by September 1st of the school year. There are several program options for parents to choose from, depending on their child’s readiness and the family’s needs. For four year olds, we offer either a half-day program, 8:30 – 11:30 am. or a full-day program, 8:30 am to 2:30 pm. The options include two days (Tuesday and Thursday), three days (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) or five days (Monday – Friday). The three year old program is only available on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
