Blessed Sacrament

  • The philosophy on which Blessed Sacrament Preschool is based centers upon making the child's first school experience a positive one.
  • We offer the children a warm, loving, God-filled environment where they can develop a positive self-concept as they actively explore their world and where they interact with the teacher and each other.
  • We have a structured but flexible and informal setting where the children enjoy learning through a variety of hands-on activities and materials.
  • We present a religion program but also incorporate religious concepts and values in all we do throughout our day.
  • We also present social and scientific fun, language and math skills at their level and interest, motor skills, and development in social and emotional and reasoning skills.
  • We do a lot of creative, musical and motor activities.
  • Praying together and developing sensitivity to the feelings and needs of others are important steps toward developing Christian attitudes in children and are an important part of our preschool program.
