Preschool Program

Our Preschool program at Saint Michael School offers developmentally appropriate learning opportunities for children ages three through five in a safe, nurturing environment.  Through a variety of thematic units gleaned from student's interests they are challenged by new experiences, excited to attend school, and have an ownership of their individual learning.  

Play Centers change with every month according to the theme in our curriculum planning process.  They serve to motivate and activate our students' content learning through cooperative play.  We follow the Vermont Early Learning Standards and the Early Learning Guidelines for the Diocese of Burlington, which includes Approaches to Learning, Social and Emotional Development, Language, Literacy, and Communication, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Creative Expression, and Physical Development and Health.

As a partner in the Catholic Community we introduce children to the Church.  They learn to pray, to respect themselves, one another, and God's House, and learn that there are special days that we celebrate as part of the Catholic Religion.
