The St. Patrick of Heatherdowns Pre-Kindergarten Program believes that children are unique individuals experiencing life and gathering information at their own pace. Children grow and gather knowledge most effectively through concrete and actual experiences. Therefore, our goal is to create a stimulating “play” environment rich in hands-on opportunities for each child. The curriculum is designed to meet the needs of the “whole child”. Activities, events, and experiences will be incorporated to enhance the growth of the child’s physical, cognitive, social, emotional, creative and language development.

Being a Catholic school, very basic religious concepts, such as loving ourselves, our families, our friends, and all living things will be incorporated into the curriculum. Taking care of God’s earth and the gifts He has given us will be an integral part of the child’s learning environment.

Our Kindergarten year is filled with excitement, learning, and friendship. We learn about the alphabet and how to read. We also learn about numbers, science, social studies, and how to take good care of ourselves and others. We will be building strong friendships by following the gospel guidelines and filling our friends’ buckets daily. We are excited to take fun field trips to Children’s Wonderland and the Toledo Zoo.

It is true, all you need to know in life, you learned in Kindergarten!

Bouncin' through the adventure of first grade; learning by doing! We daily laugh, learn, and love each other. What do we learn? Reading, writing, math, science; all the while keeping what Jesus told in mind, "Treat other people the way you want to be treated." He is the Potter; we are the clay.  What is He creating in YOU?

Third graders are self aware, outgoing, and receptive. We provide them with the skills and environment to increase their ability to think and actively participate as they grow spiritually and intellectually. We prepare them to become life-long learners while living out their faith.
