Early Childhood/Pre-K and Kindergarten

Our early childhood program is the foundation of Blessed Sacrament School’s pre-k to eighth grade experience. BSS early childhood teachers work to: 

  • Treat each student as a child of God with special gifts and talents to be discovered and nurtured. 
  • Build positive relationships with families and children recognizing that parents are the first and most important educators of their children. 
  • Provide a physically and emotionally safe environment for children to build confidence and a positive self-image. 
  • Create organized, predictable, pleasant classroom environments where students feel loved and supported in developing friendships and in new learning endeavors. 
  • Use best practices and the latest instructional technology to plan and implement lessons. 
  • Promote the physical, social-emotional, and cognitive development of our young children through multiple opportunities to practice emerging skills. 
  • Celebrate the arts with age-appropriate art, music, drama, and movement experiences that reflect cultural diversity. Communicate often with parents about their child’s interests, needs, progress, and growth. 
  • Link to the greater Blessed Sacrament School and Church community through attendance at daily assembly, monthly Masses, and participation in community service. 
  • Make learning enjoyable and meaningful for all children.
  • Communicate often with parents about their child’s interests, needs, progress, and growth.
