Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Pre-School is the first step into the school environment. This important first step encourages the development of the whole child: their natural sense of spiritual wonder, their ability to problem solve through play, and their involvement in planned activities that encourage exploration of new skills.

Our goals for the child:
1. To provide a positive intial school experience
2. To develop the whole child: spiritually, socially, intellectually, physically and emotionally
3. To promote a sense of belonging to a larger caring community
4. To nurture in each child a love of God's creation which encourages respect for self, others and the world.
