Early Childhood Programs

Nursery School, Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten Programs
At Our Lady of Mercy School, we believe children are unique and special individuals who develop at their own pace, in their own time. 
In addition to focusing on school readiness, we encourage life-long learning, problem solving and decision making, and inspire each child to reach his/her individual potential. 

Our early childhood programs are designed to focus on the growth of the
whole child. 
Our goals are: 
  • To support parents in their efforts to instill in their child a love of God and learning. 
  • To bridge the separation between home and school.
  •  Develop a positive attitude toward school.
  •  Learn to accept and follow directions and assume responsibilities.
  •  Learn basic safety rules and good health practices. 
  • Develop self-control, initiative, and independence. 
  • Gain self-confidence and a positive self-image. 
  • Develop cognitive skills to foster continued learning. 
  • Develop problem solving strategies.

 Our Kindergarten program introduces children to a more formal academic program.  Curriculum includes Religion, Math, ELA , Literacy, Science and Social Studies.  Students also attend weekly Technology, Art, Music and Physical Education classes.
