The Archangel Michael Preschool Program

Our preschool provides children aged 2-5 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 or CD certified 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.

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, cooking, and studying nature. Snapology Program is also incorporated during the school day for 8 weeks. Snapology is a program that uses LEGO, robotics and STEM activities to teach science. This class is offered to the Nursery and Pre-K classes
Introduction to Religion & Language Kids feel supported and encouraged as they learn the building blocks of the Orthodox faith and celebrate major holidays. The Greek Language is introduced through songs, books and creative activities. The older children begin learning letters and sounds with skill level appropriate Greek language resources.
