Early Childhood - Pre-Kindergarten and Nursery School

In our newly renovated Pre-Kindergarten and Nursery classroom, our students will focus on  more than just developing their communication and language skills and kindergarten readiness.  Our Lady of Wisdom's Pre-Kindergarten program offers a comprehensive curriculum that includes reading, writing, science, social studies, and religion in a developmentally appropriate instructional environment. 

Our curriculum empowers our young learners with self-confidence to develop their God given potential and to encourage the love of learning through discovery.

Your child's Pre-Kindergarten experience at OLOW includes, but is not limited to:

  • Hands-on Science exploration program
  • Special Areas (Music, Physical Education, Art, Technology, Foreign Language)
  • Inclusion in school-wide enrichment activities & Masses
  • 7th and 8th Grade Buddies for various activities
  • An early childhood classroom immersed in literacy

Flexible Schedules: Both full and half-day programs are available

Personal Attention:  Our young learners have a full-time teacher and teacher aide. 

Subject exploration:  Students participate in 1-2 specialty subjects per day. (Specialty subjects include foreign language, technology, music, art and physical education).

Mentor program: Students are paired with a 7th or 8th grade "buddy".  Their "buddy" will serve as a mentor during the school year.  They will participate in special activities and projects together providing the young student with encouragement and confidence as they explore new things.  This in turn, provides our 7th and 8th graders with a sense of responsibility further developing their character, compassion and values.

Experts in education agree that a high quality full day Pre-K experience, such as Our Lady of Wisdom’s, has positive long lasting educational benefits that continue throughout the elementary years.   To explore our Academic programs in grades K-8 click here.
