Holy Childhood School provides the young child with the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in school.
Our caring, experienced, qualified teachers work closely with parents to provide a link between home and school.
Parents, the first teachers of their children, are encouraged to participate in all aspects of the program.
Our aim is to give the children a firm academic, social/emotional and spiritual foundation on which to build their future school experiences.
We provide a nurturing, caring, safe environment for children to learn, play and grow.
Age and developmentally appropriate activities and lessons are based in every program.
As a Catholic school, we also help develop an awareness of God’s presence in their lives and to promote a relationship with Jesus and each other.
Through prayers, songs, Bible stories and respecting the rights, thoughts and feelings of others, we learn and play each day in a Christian environment.
