EPIPHANY

CATHOLIC SCHOOL

Epiphany Preschool

 

At Epiphany Catholic School, we believe in fostering the development of the WHOLE child.  Our program concentrates on the Spiritual, Emotional/Social, Physical, and Intellectual development of each child through age-appropriate, hands-on learning.   We lay a strong academic foundation by creating an environment full of educational materials and tools that encourage children to explore and learn while growing their creativity and sense of self. 

 

Spiritual Development

Children learn that God created each of us to be unique individuals.We are all special!  Each child will come to know God and His love for them.They learn that we should also love one another as an extension of God’s love for us.The children start every day with a prayer to help remind them to give thanks to God for all He does for us.Each and every lesson that is taught in our program is fully founded on faith and Catholic values.We instill in our students kindness, empathy, compassion, and respect for one another.

 

Emotional/Social Development

We provide a loving and warm environment where children learn to associate pleasure with learning.  Children’s self-confidence is developed and nurtured by increasing their chances of success while providing the space to fail without fear.  Epiphany strives to provide an optimal teacher /child ratio of 1 staff member to 6-8 children with each class having a teacher and aide.  This ensures direct, individual attention and support for each and every child.

Physical Development

Many activities are provided that stimulate both gross and fine motor skill development on a daily basis.  The outdoor play area is full of equipment and materials that facilitate physical development and creative play.  The children also learn about healthy eating and how to choose the right fuels for their growing bodies. 

 

Intellectual Development

Our program recognizes and encourages children’s natural curiosity by providing the opportunity to explore and investigate their interests.Children have free choice time which allows them to discover new information and explore new ideas.These child-led activities are balanced with structured, small group activities. Children are introduced to math, science, social studies, music, art, and literature through engaging lessons.In addition to small group activities and free choice time, children also participate in Circle time.This time is dedicated to allowing the children to engage with one another and participate in our lesson or theme of the week as an entire class.
