The Preschool & Kindergarten division of Sacred Heart Schools provides a safe and nurturing environment for children ages 3-6. Through the Montessori teaching method, this three-year academic program forms a strong foundation for a lifetime of learning and personal growth.
The benefits to the child of a Montessori education include learning at an individual rate, accommodation of all learning styles, learning how to focus and concentrate, and developing a sense of order. These outcomes are the result of a long and deliberate sequence of exercises and experiences that are carefully matched to each student’s individual developmental needs. It is the role of the Montessori teacher to ensure that the curriculum continues to build for each individual student as far as the student’s interest and initiative will take them. For these reasons, an education at Sacred Heart's Preschool & Kindergarten prepares students very well for elementary school, whether at Sacred Heart, another traditional school, or a non-traditional elementary school.
"One test of the correctness of educational procedure is the happiness of the child itself.”
