Early Childhood - Pre-Kindergarten

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 Pre-K students with self-confidence to develop their God given potential and to encourage the love of learning through discovery.

- Hands-on Science exploration program

Flexible Schedules: Both full and half-day programs are available
Personal Attention: Our Pre-Kindergarten classroom has a full-time teacher and teacher aide.
Subject exploration: Pre-Kindergarten students participate in 1-2 specialty subjects per day. (Specialty subjects include foreign language, technology, music, art and physical education).
Mentor program: Pre-Kindergarten students are paired with an 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 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.
