For 3, 4, and Early 5 Year Olds
Our preschool program at Saint Mary Magdalen provides a Christian education in a warm, caring environment for the young children of our parish and the community. We provide opportunities for the children to grow spiritually, socially, intellectually, emotionally, physically, and to gain confidence in their natural abilities. We work to build a solid foundation for success in future schoolwork.
We use Teaching Strategies Gold (Creative Curriculum). The early years of childhood are an important time in their development. Most of the potential for learning is established by age six. During this time, children need a stimulating environment in which they can build on their knowledge and experiences through educational play, social interaction, problem solving, exploration, and discovery. “Play” is a very important part of the preschool classroom and much of the learning takes place through teacher-directed play activities.
Our preschool is licensed through the state of Michigan, early childhood education. We meet all state requirements.
All of Magdalen’s Preschool staff members have been fingerprinted and have had background checks completed through the state of Michigan. In addition, all staff members are certified teachers through the state of Michigan as well as certified in first aid, CPR, and blood-borne pathogens. They have also completed the following: Protecting God’s Children (VIRTUS), ALICE training, Epipen training, and inhaler training.
We believe that a strong parent/teacher partnership is the key to your child’s success. We communicate through various channels, including backpack mail, email, and text messages to keep parents informed and in contact with teachers.
