Profile: Holy Redeemer pre-K programs are a unique learning community where our youngest students come to enjoy their first experience in school, and we want them to love it.

We understand young children learn best through hands-on activities, rich interpersonal relationships, and play. Our exceptional teachers focus on developmentally appropriate self-help, language arts, and math skills. There is a rich tradition of art projects and other creative experiences. Students are encouraged to take appropriate risks as they learn and grow. All 3- and 4-year-old classes participate in co-curricular programs, including music, physical education, time in the library, and more.

The social curriculum is as important as academics. By incorporating Holy Redeemer’s four Cs—courtesy, compassion, community, and commitment—into the daily life of the classrooms, children develop the knowledge and skills needed to become responsible learners and kind friends.

Our most important goal is to support and celebrate each child’s gifts and individual successes in a safe, loving, creative, and nurturing environment.
