Class Description

Ascension preschool helps your child to foster a strong love for learning at an early age. Differentiated instruction along with purposefully planned lessons allows each student to grow as independent learners as well as develop their place in the community. With our schools mission in mind, “Making Learning Visible”, the Preschool and Jr. Kindergarten teachers implement developmentally appropriate, hands-on lessons and activities that will teach mathematics, literacy, science, and religion. Your child will also focus on the very important social, emotional, and physical skills that are developed during these vital years. As a Catholic school, we are also building upon the earliest stages of your child’s faith through prayer, service, and weekly Mass.

The Jr. Kindergarten is a class that is rich with learning, both social and academic. Your child will build upon those important social skills that are first planted in the preschool classroom, as well as prepare the students for Kindergarten. Our sight word program, counting challenges, and use of Seesaw will help your child learn responsibility and perseverance. Your child will participate in service projects with the preschool class throughout the year as well to help your child develop their place in the community. We will also begin thinking about their place in God’s world and building our faith through weekly mass attendance.
