Home + Academics = Early Childhood
Early Childhood
Corpus Christi Catholic School’s Early Childhood Programs include Preschool and Enrichment opportunities for children ages 3 to young 5’s.  

We believe that children learn best when they feel physically and emotionally safe and secure; when they have opportunities to work individually as well as in small and large groups; when they feel self-confident; and when activities are developmentally appropriate for each child’s unique learning style.  Blending non-academic and academic experiences for these young students, our programs are designed to encourage their development in faith, social/emotional growth, and motor skills as well as introducing them to language skills, reading and math readiness, and science and social studies.
