Mary of Nazareth Catholic School has announced that the school will offer a full-day preschool program to families in Upper-Montgomery County beginning September 2017. The program, offered to four-year-olds, will feature a play-based learning environment aimed at enriching students’ lives through hands on experience.
Development of the “whole child” is central to the program’s philosophy and curriculum. Math, science, language, social, and emotional skills are encouraged through participation in a wide variety of activities, including dramatic play, art projects, and outdoor exploration. Children are introduced to fundamental tenets of Catholic social teaching.
“We believe the new 4’s program meets a growing demand for full-day preschool and will allow our vibrant, faith-based program to flourish,” said Principal Mike Friel, on the decision to expand Mary of Nazareth’s Preschool, originally founded in 2008. The program for four-year-olds will meet Monday through Friday from 8:25 am until 2:55 pm, and will accept a maximum of 20 students.
Tuition for families in the Washington D.C. diocese is $6,200 per child and $6,700 per child for out-of-diocese families for the 2017-2018 school year. Interested families are invited to tour Mary of Nazareth’s campus and meet its talented faculty at Open House this Sunday, January 29 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.
