Philosophy and Goals


Our Lady of Perpetual Help Preschool is an early childhood education program, which is designed to nurture the development of the whole child. 

Preparing young children for their future school experiences, means providing them with learning opportunities in all areas of development including: cognition, socialization, listening and language skills, fine and gross motor skills, and preacademics.

 All children develop differently and at their own pace, so it is our responsibility to provide your child with the tools that he/she needs to be successful. Learning goals for each child are based on assessment of individual needs and interests.
