Thinking about a private kindergarten? We have a Parent Information Meeting on Thursday, January 26, 2017 at 7:00pm in Room 127 of the Education Building! Come visit our private kindergarten we call the “Five’s Enrichment” Class. It is a wonderful alternative to public school kindergarten.  We have three adults that work with 22 children encouraging creativity, observation and critical thinking skills using a “hands-on” approach to learning. The class meets the TEKS objectives for the State of Texas.
Call 214-644-2080 for information.

Learning Strategies we incorporate at the preschool:

  • + Encourage creativity
  • + Provide hands-on experiences
  • + Be age-appropriate
  • + Offer free play that facilitates choice, cooperation, and problem solving
  • + Be relevant to the child’s world
  • + Be fun and play-filled
  • + Help each child naturally experience God’s presence in their daily lives.

The Sunshine and Rainbows Early Learning Center program offers appropriate learning and play experiences that contribute to the intellectual, social, spiritual, emotional, and physical growth of each child.
Intellectually
Your child will gain confidence in a school environment by learning listening skills and following directions while gaining experience in vocabulary, writing, letter recognition, number concepts, science, music and art.
Socially
Your child will learn about humility, kindness, sharing, forgiveness, patience, compassion, and obedience.
Spiritually
Your child will grow in his/her relationship with God by praying, and by applying God’s truths to his/her life. Each child will learn to be truthful, accept others as God made them and treat others as he/she wants to be treated. We are a faith-based Catholic program.
Emotionally
Your child will experience love and acceptance for who he/she is, as well as, encouragement in successes and mistakes. Children will learn to like themselves as God created them so they can learn to love and accept others.
Physically
Your child will build on his/her large motor skills with play on our playground. Appropriate games and equipment are provided to enhance and develop these skills.
