Early Childhood

Pre-Kindergarten CCE
Beginning at the age of four, children are invited to participate in religion classes with a parent. Parental involvement is vital at this age, so that the lesson learned in class can be reinforced at home by the parents, the child’s first educator. Students must be accompanied by a parent or adult at each class. The classes meet twice a month during the school year and provide a basis for future religious education. Each class offers a faith message, craft and prayer opportunities.

Kindergarten CCE
Kindergarten CCE is an excellent introduction to our Catholic Faith. Children participate in religion classes that are geared toward instilling a sense that God loves them and that they are members of the Church. Bible stories, stories of saints, basic prayers, songs and crafts are the main focus. Parental involvement within the class is strongly encouraged, with parents invited to attend one of more classes during the year.

CCE Music
As part of Early Childhood and Elementary CCE, students have the opportunity to learn about their Catholic faith by celebrating their love of the Lord and love for each other through music. The songs we sing reflect the Gospel passage for the week or the liturgical season and connect to the class unit of study. Students in grades PK through 5 will have music during their CCE class time on a rotating basis. For more information regarding music, email Paula Cole, Coordinator of CCE Music.
