Notre Dame Preschool is designed to promote the development of each child to his or her fullest potential though an educational program permeated with Christian spirit and values. The children who attend our programs are encouraged to develop at their own rate spiritually, socially, emotionally, and physically through a variety of materials and experiences. Our goal is to provide a supportive, loving atmosphere based on Christian values. The programs are organized with some structure and discipline, yet freedom and comfort to develop a positive self-concept. The philosophy of Notre Dame Catholic School is that of our Lord in teaching students with love, patience, consistency, firmness, honesty and understanding. As Jesus does with His parables, teachers share knowledge that will inform students and also encourage them to search for deeper understanding of subject matter and its application to themselves. Through methods and role-modeling, teachers strive to build student self-esteem, self-determination, self-discipline, and responsibility in an atmosphere of optimism and love. Notre Dame Preschool/Playgroup welcomes everyone without regard to sex, race, religion or ethnic background. Our preschool/playgroup programs comply with the standards set by the Iowa Department of Education and are taught by a certified teachers with Early Childhood endorsement. Parents are welcome to observe and work with the program.
