PreK 3 Year Olds

We just love our littlest cardinals! 

Our long-standing and award winning Holy Redeemer tradition begins early, for three and four year olds, with outstanding program options.

Holy Redeemer PreK programs are a unique learning community where our youngest students come to enjoy their first experience in school and we want them to LOVE it!

We understand young children learn best through hands-on activities, rich interpersonal relationships, and play.  Our exceptional teachers focus on developmentally appropriate self-help, language arts, and math skills.  There is a rich tradition of art projects and other creative experiences.  Students are encouraged to take appropriate risks as they learn and grow. All  PreK 3 year old classes participate in co-curricular programs including Bible, time in the Library, and more.

The social curriculum is as important as academics.  By incorporating Holy Redeemer’s 4C’s: Courtesy, Compassion, Community and Commitment, into the daily life of the classrooms, children develop the knowledge and skills needed to become responsible learners and kind friends.

Our most important goal is to support and celebrate each child’s gifts and individual successes in a safe, loving, creative, and nurturing environment.

Holy Redeemer is proud to offer several options for parents of three year old children in PreK.

  • Monday-Friday Full Day: 8:20 - 2:50
  • Monday-Friday Half Day: 8:20 - 12:20
  • Monday/Wednesday/Friday Half Day: 8:20 - 12:20
  • ​Tuesday/Thursday Half Day: 8:20 - 12:20

Parent Participation, aka Co-op

There are many opportunities for all parents to be involved in their child's classroom and in their student’s day at Holy Redeemer School. To facilitate hands on learning projects parents in our half-day program are required to spend one morning each month in their child's classroom.  Families may forgo this co-op requirement for an additional fee of $600. (Full day families' volunteer requirement is 1 week of recess duty, which may also be forgone for an additional fee of $250.)

Before/Aftercare & Hot lunch for full-day PreK students

Children in full-day PreK programs are eligible for before and after school care every day, as well as hot lunch options several days per week.  For questions about our Aftercare program, please contact Mary Ruth Clark at

Can I take a tour? Yes! Please contact Mrs. Debbie Monahan to inquire about touring our facility.

What if I am not Catholic? Our school is open to all - we welcome you with open arms, regardless of your faith. Our school credo is “Go RED: Respect Everyone Daily” and we live by it.

What’s the difference between the half-day programs and full-day programs?  They are both play based and offer a nurturing first school experience for students.  Academic time does take place primarily in the morning, while the afternoon will include lunch, nap time, and recess.
