The Archangel Michael Preschool Program

Our preschool provides children aged 18 months-5 years old with a nurturing, supportive, and caring environment in which to grow. Our curriculum includes age- and developmentally-appropriate activities, including instructions in Greek language and our Greek Orthodox Faith. Our early childhood instructors are New York State-licensed and our student to teacher ratio is low, ensuring personal attention. Our students and their families are encouraged to participate in all Archangel Michael programs, activities, and fellowship events, strengthening the connection between home and school.

Reading Readiness

Experience with early childhood literature develops cognitive skills and encourages imagination. An auditory introduction to Greek enhances listening skills.

Arts & Crafts

Using drawing and finger-painting as well as sand, Play-doh, and water play, kids express and develop their creativity.

Computer Basics

Children learn shapes, colors, and the alphabet while strengthening fine motor skills.

Music, Dance & Creative Expression

Kids express themselves through movement and music, which also offers developmental benefits by reinforcing academic concepts and fostering logical thinking.

Math & Science Concepts

At multiple discovery stations, kids engage in hands-on exploration of the fundamentals through measuring, coooking, and studying nature.

Introduction to Religion

Kids feel supported and encouraged as they learn the building blocks of the Orthodox faith and celebrate major holidays.

Healthy Snacks & Lunch

Sunshine & Fresh Air

Kids have fun climbing, swinging, and sliding in the school's new enclosed play yard. Both structured and unstructured play helps kids learn important social skills.

We provide healthy foods for kids to enjoy with their friends and teachers. We are an allergy-aware preschool, so please let us know your child's needs and preferences. We are glad to accommodate for food allergies and sensitivities.
