Arts and crafts projects, crocheting, science experiments, computers, games and recreation are just a few of the enriching programs. Children also enjoy the integration of music and dance. Additionally, time is allotted for supervised homework with resource materials available.

Offered throughout the school year are special activities centered around monthly themes, as well as special events such as the Halloween Carnival and the end of the year Water Fight.

All children are provided a snack, and there is a designated nap time for Transitional Kinders and Kindergarteners.

The Prayer of Saint Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is doubt, faith;
And where there is sadness, joy.
O, Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled,
As to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved, as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
