Our Lady of Perpetual Help School’s Early Childhood Program offers programs to meet the needs of children twelve months old through five years old. We have both part and full-time classes. Classes meet on the following schedule:
- Monday through Friday (Full-Time)
- Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
- Tuesday and Thursday (available in our One-Year-Old and Two-Year-Old Classes)
The day begins at 8:30 for our One and Two-Year-Old classes. They are escorted into the building to their classroom by a parent. If you are arriving after 8:30 am, please bring your child to the office, and a teacher or assistant will come and get them.
For our three and four-year-old students, the day begins at 8:00 am. Students may be dropped off at the portico on the west side of the building where teachers and assistants will be waiting to help your child to his or her room. Parents can also park and escort their children in to their classroom. If you are arriving after 8:00 am, please proceed to the school office where a teacher or assistant will take your child to the classroom.
Each student is given a cubby for his or her personal items and a nap mat with a cover that is sent home regularly. The day begins with student choice activities in fun and educational centers for growth and social interaction. Students transition to circle time where they are introduced to new topics and learning objectives are reinforced. Daily work includes learning through play with changing center activities, manipulatives and hands-on experiences, reading, fine and gross motor work, and outside time. Every class has recess, nap, snack, and lunch daily. Snack and lunch policy are as follows:
- One and Two-Year-Old Classs- snack and lunch provided by home
- Three and Four-Year-Old Classes- snack provided by home / lunch available for purchase or provided by home
Our youngest children learn by experiencing the world around them through play and guided activities with time spent outdoors at our enclosed playground. Students’ imaginations and knowledge of the world are cultivated during story time in the school library, and they develop a love for rhythm and dance in their dynamic music class, Musik Adventures. Students receive age-appropriate religious education daily and learn prayers, Bible stories, and Jesus’ love and compassion for us all.
