The Academy of Our Lady of Peace Preschool program focuses on the developmental needs of preschool students, encouraging them to explore, create and learn. We have adopted teaching and learning practices from the Creative Curriculum program to support students as they learn through discovery, create artwork, conduct science experiments and play pretend. We strive to best prepare our students to have the highest level of success in Kindergarten.

The Academy of Our Lady of Peace Preschool Programs offer thematically integrated curriculum in the subject areas of math, science, language arts, social studies, religion, technology, library, Spanish, music and art. Our three year old program introduces students to colors, shapes, numbers and nursery rhymes as key content. Then, in PreK 4, students are introduced to relevant curriculum that presents readiness skills essential in the preparation for Kindergarten.
