Early Childhood Program at St. Angela
At St. Angela, we believe that future school success may depend on a student's childhood experience of school. Therefore, our program is designed with the physical, mental, artistic, social, moral and spiritual aspects of development in mind. Special emphasis is placed on building up a child's feelings of accomplishment, self-confidence and self-worth.
Our small classrooms are led by certified teachers who teach a play-based curriculum that allows students to learn and grow at their own pace. Our student teacher ratio never exceeds 10:1 and each student receives individual attention. Scholarships are available in our Early Childhood Program.
