Our Lady of Sorrows Preschool is a play-based approach to learning. We use the guidelines of the Newark Archdiocese Curriculum in conjunction with weekly thematic units. All academic subjects are covered within each unit.
For example – during our unit on pumpkins, Math is taught through counting pumpkins seeds, weighing pumpkins, and shape recognition with jack-o’-lantern faces. Science is taught through pumpkin carving, investigation, and life cycle. Literacy is taught through pumpkin books and journal writing.
While academic subjects are an important part of early childhood learning, we strongly focus on kindness, sharing, manners, and healthy emotional development of the young child. All Pre-K4 children participate in special subject classes: Music, Gym, Computers, Library and Spanish.
