Our Lady of Good Counsel offers a balanced approach to education, developing faith-filled, life-long learners, through a play-based and developmentally appropriate curriculum.
Our preschool staff has full access to the resources of both our school and church communities. Each class has a Lead Teacher and an Assistant Teacher with a maximum of 10-15 students.
A typical day includes activities that foster pre-reading, writing and math readiness skills in a play-based environment. Open-ended art activities, faith formation, outdoor play and rest time. Our preschoolers enjoy music and movement activities and hands-on science experiences. We participate in Chapel times, and visit the elementary school for library time and other designated activities.

PRESCHOOL Plan for 2020-21 School Year:
Preschool will be 5 days a week in person for half days, from 8 am - 12 pm each day, with a staggering drop-off beginning at 7:45 am. Uniforms are required and there is no eLearning. The standard half day tuition charge ($6,750) will be in effect to help cover the increased costs in staffing, cleaning, and other modifications that are necessary.
We will not provide lunch, but a daily snack will be provided, and no extended care will be available.
We are concerned about the Wee Wildcats maintaining social distancing while protecting their social-emotional learning, and the shorter day allows us to feel confident that we can accomplish that goal. Unfortunately, they will not be able to come over to the big school this year.
