Our Lady of Mercy Academy Preschool fosters an environment where children are encouraged to bring their enthusiasm for discovery, excitement for learning and passion for creativity. Our teachers support the children as they develop their independence and become comfortable with a group routine. Children learn through play and direct educational experience while parents and teachers work together to nurture each child's evolving self-esteem. We encourage our children to become problem solvers, to express themselves thoughtfully, and to grow in self-confidence.
Social development is central to our philosophy. Our experienced teachers create a safe environment for the children to move toward reaching their full potential with others by taking turns, listening, participating, and sharing experiences and feelings.
Our Lady of Mercy Preschool Academy conducts an academically oriented program in large, spacious classrooms with private bathrooms. The program offers daily specials such as Art, Music, Library, Computers, and Physical Education. Within the supportive environment, the children enjoy individual learning, small group activities, directed learning centers, snack, outdoor play, and a religion program with daily prayer.
Our Kindergarten Readiness Program is for children who are 3 years old by October 1st. Our 3 year old students attend a 5 half-day a week curriculum and are offered the option to extend to a full day for 3, 4 or 5 days each week. Our 4 Year old students attend a full five day a week curriculum.
