Students behind wooden letters that spell Holy Name


Holy Name School offers a safe and nurturing environment for the youngest members of our community in Preschool 3 and Pre-Kindergarten 4.

Through our new Preschool 3 program, our students learn through active play and exploring the world around them. Children develop a sense of creativity, learn to work with others and independently, and strengthen their social and emotional skills. Students begin to learn to problem solve through fun STEM activities.

Our Pre-Kindergarten 4 program continues teaching students to learn through active play but also focuses on kindergarten readiness. Pre-Kindergarten 4 students also learn through reasoning, hypothesizing, predicting, and theorizing through STEM projects. Students begin to love learning as independent, responsible, and organized individuals to build a strong foundation for kindergarten.

We pride ourselves on providing a fun, safe, and nurturing learning environment for a child's first school experience. The children have specials that include computers, physical education, music, and art based on meeting state and diocesan learning outcomes while meeting the social, emotional, and developmental needs of young children. We provide teacher-directed large group instruction using music, movement, manipulatives, and great literature. Children are also engaged in a variety of small group play and learning areas within the classroom that meet their social and educational needs and tie into the monthly curriculum theme.

  • Weekly Mass
