Facilities
Holy Spirit School’s Monsignor McQuaid PreK-3 Early Childhood Education Center is located on the campus of Holy Spirit School.  An independent facility from the school, the building is fully air conditioned, fenced in, and features security measures such as alarms, external camera units and monitors for your child’s safety and your piece of mind. On the grounds, we offer a wide variety of safe outdoor play equipment for the children to play.  The facility also has a full kitchen area and bathroom, and has plenty of room to learn and play.

The PreK-4 program is offered in the main school with a private bathroom. Children enjoy the benefit of the main school facilities, including a Smartboard in the classroom, the Computer Lab, the Library, the Cafeteria, and the Gymnasium.

Curriculum
Holy Spirit is abreast of the latest technology and trends in Early Childhood Education.  Our fully Certified Teachers introduce the children to Reading, Phonics, Mathematics, Science, Religion, Social Studies, Art, Music and Physical Education in a fun, age appropriate way.  Additionally, skills  in socialization, classroom acclimation, Kindergarten readiness and self assurance are emphasized as part of our complete, comprehensive learning experience.  Children are introduced to Spanish language instruction and computers.  We strive to have both you and your child feel as if this is a second home.

Programs
We have programs designed for 3 year olds, 4 year olds and 5 year olds. We understand that today’s working parents have a variety of schedules, and with that comes the need for a variety of pre-school programs.  In keeping up with today’s demand, we offer many different options to ensure that your and your child’s needs are met.  We also have a very flexible before and after school care program that is available to you.  Additionally, if you do not see a program that meets your specific needs, please call the office and we will be glad to discuss how we can accommodate you and your family.

All Pre-K 3 classes are held at the Msgr. McQuaid Pre-K Center and all Pre-K 4 classes are held at the main school. Pre-K 3 and Pre-K 4 classes are not combined. Both the Pre-K 3 and Pre-K 4 classes are available up to five full days with morning and afternoon child care available.
