The Early Education Center at Immaculate Conception School provides a transitional environment from the home to a structure of formal schooling. The preschool program prepares each child for future learning through a developmentally appropriate program with attention to individual readiness.
The administration, faculty and staff at Immaculate Conception School desire to assist our children to:
* Understand Jesus the Good Shepherd is our teacher and friend.
* Know they are part of our Church and School families.
* Experience creative learning situations.
* Obtain personal pride in their achievements.
* Enjoy group play.
* Feel safe and loved in our school environment.
* Mutual respect of others and their property.
* Develop a positive self-concept and self -discipline.
* Understand it is FUN to learn.
Our students receive a strong religious and academic foundation in a loving and nurturing environment. The caring atmosphere assists students in realizing their fullest potential in becoming responsible members of God's family. These goals are accomplished by encouraging our students to accept and live out the call of the Gospel.
