Divine Redeemer Preschool believes that each child is created by God as a special, unique individual. We strive to provide an enriched, productive environment for cognitive and social-emotional growth. We believe that the child’s early years are crucial to the remainder of development.

Ultimately, preschool should provide the child with a happy, unhurried, and developmentally appropriate experience. It must prepare the child for kindergarten, but at the same time, allow the child to be a child.

We provide a safe, educational environment that allows friendships to grow, imaginations to soar, and explorations that lead to the love of learning. Our activities are developmentally age-appropriate and will target the necessary skills to prepare your child for kindergarten. It is an academic environment that is enriched by daily religion lessons, as well as the arts!

The students have Music class one day a week for 30 minutes with Mrs. Bernot. She teaches them new songs to sing, and she also introduces them to various instruments. They play tambourines, flutes, sticks, and triangles. They even performed as a preschool bell choir for the winter concert!

Young children have a developmental need for group association with peers.

Play is the natural occupation of the child. It is the means of investigation the environment and alleviating emotional stress. Its emphasis is on process, not product-allowing for success and building self-esteem (Based on Early Childhood Theories of Jean Plaget)

Preschool can begin the natural process of separation.

Children develop in predictable stages within an individual time frame.

Parent involvement and communication is crucial to the success of the program.

Divine Redeemer Preschool believes that each child is created by God as a unique individual. We strive to provide an enriched, productive environment for intellectual and social growth. Our work is to enhance, not be a substitute for, the work being done by the parents and family. We believe the child’s early years are crucial to the remainder of development.

Ultimately, preschool should provide the young child with a happy, unhurried, and developmentally appropriate experience. It must allow the child to be a child.
