Early Learning Center

Holy Ghost Catholic School’s Pre-K2, PreK-3, PreK-4, and Kindergarten programs provide a solid foundation and a nurturing environment for social, emotional, and academic development in order to foster life-long learning and deepen faith. Academic activities focus on building confidence, independence, curiosity, and a love of learning. Students are individually assessed to best serve each child’s needs. Students review, build upon, and reinforce the skills and concepts previously learned throughout the year. Students learn through hands-on activities, learning centers, directive play, and small group instruction.
