Top 5 Reasons to Enroll Your Child at St. Katherines Paideia Preschool


1.      Our PAIDEIA Preschool is a unique, faith-based program in which children are taught the Orthodox Christian values and Hellenic ideals which build good character, good citizenship and instills an early enthusiasm for learning.


2.      Recent studies have shown that a window of opportunity for learning languages occurs between the ages of one to five years old. Our preschool’s bilingual program teaches the Greek language in a semi-immersion program, mostly through play and music for the 2-3 year olds, and a more structured lesson plan for the 3-5 year olds (intermixed with play and music as well.)


3.      Curriculum is broad and varied and includes opportunities for leadership, service, spiritual development, exploration of the arts, and physical education.


4.      Classes are small allowing each child a more personal, nurturing experience with their teachers and peers alike.


5.      We believe that when children spend their early years learning about the Greek Orthodox faith, the Greek language and Hellenic culture, they will be better prepared for their continuing education and into life.
