At Little Angels Preschool we are able to make God the focus of our classroom. We spend time each day learning about God’s love and how to pray to Him. Little Angels preschool is a warm, Christ-centered setting for a child’s first educational experience.

We offer two programs to children of York and the surrounding communities.  Both programs follow the St. Joseph School calendar.

The 3 year old Little Angels Preschool meets Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8:00 to 10:30.  The afternoon session begins at 12:30 and ends at 3:00.  Enrollment in each class is limited to 10 children.

The 4 and 5 year old Little Angels preschool meets Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  The morning class is from 8:00 to 11:00 and the afternoon class meets from 12:15 to 3:15.  Enrollment in each class is limited to 12 children.

Throughout the year the students in both programs learn a variety of skills that help prepare them for kindergarten.  Zoo phonics is begun in the 3 year old program to help the children learn the beginning letter sounds. By the end of the 4 year old program students will be prepared to sound out words in kindergarten.

During circle times students are not only working on zoo animals and sounds, but they are also working on kindergarten readiness skills. Sitting attentively for short periods of time, active listening to stories, participation in discussions, and general turn taking skills also help them prepare for kindergarten.

Themes, such as the seasons, hibernation, and our senses, are incorporated into the program each week. Every holiday is also a topic of discussion and a theme during the appropriate time of the year.

Concepts such as patterns, putting things in order (sequencing), placement words (over, under, inside, outside, etc.) and opposites are also a part of the curriculum. Through the variety of activities and lessons students will learn skills necessary to move on to kindergarten.
