Preschool Program

 

At Angelus Academy we offer a gentle, exceptionally effective program that uniquely combines academic skills with an additional specifically Catholic religious formation program.

  

I. STRONG PROGRAM OF EARLY ACADEMIC SKILLS

Angelus Academy Preschool follows a carefully-crafted, academic sequence designed to spur cognitive development in the areas of language skills (storytelling, early reading and writing activities); mathematical reasoning and number sense; scientific reasoning in relation to the physical world; listening to and making music; studying and producing works of art using various media.  A special highlight for our preschoolers are the regular visits from their fourth grade buddies, who read stories and share activities with them.

Our preschoolers’ academic achievements simultaneously develop motor skills, work habits, social skills and opportunities to practice virtuous behavior. Through a combination of group activities and individual work, Angelus Academy Preschool helps little ones form both their intellects and their wills according to God’s desires.

II. OUR LADY’S LITTLE MESSENGERS RELIGIOUS FORMATION PROGRAM (also available as a separate option)

Our Lady’s Little Messengers is a distinctly Catholic religious formation program developed by the Women’s Apostolate to Youth, founders of Angelus Academy, for preschool children.  It takes its inspiration from the catechetical methods of the great Maria Montessori and the perennially appealing traditions of the Catholic Faith, with particular emphasis on Sacred Scripture, the liturgy, and the lives and witness of the saints.

Using simple narratives and appealing, concrete materials designed to bring the child to prayer, the program introduces children to essential elements of the Catholic Faith: liturgy and the sacraments, the teachings of Christ in the parables, the lives of selected saints, and virtuous behavior.  Because these things are presented in a form small children can easily grasp, the net effect is to create a true sense of joy and wonder: the child’s natural response to an encounter with God.
