Lead teacher at the Saint Michael’s Academy Preschool Discovery Campus
When the children were asked why they like to come to Saint Michael’s Academy Preschool Discovery Campus they gave us many interesting and amusing answers.
Here is a sampling of some of their sweet insights…
Samantha Burnette from Mrs. Taylor’s Young Explorers classroom responded “I like coming to school because I learn about Jesus”.
Nate LeClaire said “I like to learn about my letters and numbers.”
A student in Mrs. Chaput’s Busy Bee’s, Aidan Colon, replied “I likes to build with my friends.”
Mrs. Zajdel’s Young Explorer Colon Elliott said ‘I like to dig in the sand box.”
Here at the Saint Michael’s Preschool Discovery campus, we believe that play is the primary vehicle for learning and that through play , academic success is achieved.
Our program is a faith based program where children are encouraged to investigate through stimulating hands-on experiences that promote competence, self-confidence and self -direction while developing a positive attitude about learning.
A place where discovery leads to learning.
Enjoy the photos of our happy children!
