Curriculum Overview

The preschool curriculum is designed by the Diocese of Superior, and correlates to WI State and Federal standards.  We are a fully accredited preschool through WRISA (Wisconsin Religious and Independent Schools Association.)

Throughout the year we will focus on learning to recognize the alphabet, numbers, shapes, colors, patterns, positional words; proper handling and use of a pencil, scissors, paint/paint brushes, crayons, markers, play dough, etc.  Each child develops, grows and learns in a different way.  Through using a variety of teaching methods and materials, we ensure that each child learns to the best of their abilities.

It is our goal to help each child prepare and be ready for Kindergarten, when the time is right for them.  Throughout the school year, Progress Reports are sent home to show the strengths and any possible concerns of your child’s growth and learning. The Progress Reports are not meant to be a “Report Card”, but rather a tool to see where your child excels and where there are areas for improvement.
