Learning Centers

Our methodology is based on Learning Centers, through which significant and individualized learning is achieved in all areas of development.  Centers are activities located in specific areas around the classroom.  Children work in small groups, as well as independently.  Some activities are done with the teacher, while some activities are completed with peers. It favors social interaction with both peers and adults, self-regulation of behavior, language development and time management.

Through the development of the Learning Centers preschool goals are achieved, such as child-centered learning, differentiated instruction (high endowment and special learning needs), and development of basic skills as well as multiple intelligence.

Welcome to Saint Mary School, where academic excellence goes hand in hand with a comprehensive education that nourishes the heart, the mind and the spirit equally.
