At Saint Raphael Catholic Preschool, the early childhood classrooms offer an environment that encourages children to explore, question, and learn. The curriculum revolves around a child’s natural tendency to “learn through play,” allowing children to approach new concepts in a “hands-on” manner. Each child has the opportunity to follow his/her interests within the classroom community and be recognized as a special and unique child of God. It is important that each child feels respected, loved, and valued as the focus is on the development of the whole child in all areas: spiritual, fine motor, cognitive, physical, social, emotional, mathematical and critical thinking.
