The Center's preschool program is open to children who are three and older. The schedule arranged so that children may attend two or three half days a week. All children attend a two-day regular session from 9 to 11:30. A third day, Friday Special, is available for four and five year old children who have turned four by Sept 1st. Please check our convenient class options
While at the Center, children engage in a variety of hands-on, sensory based activities within a structured environment, The Center's correlated approach allows for extended exploration of themes across the curriculum.
Children work in age-based SMALL CLASS GROUPS, with 10 to 12 children per teacher. There are a maximum of thirty six children attending the regular morning sessions with three teachers, and twenty four on Friday Special with two teachers. The class groups rotate through our three classrooms. See the daily schedule.

We are loving our new classrooms at Mount Carmel. The rooms are spacious and lovely, and we are enjoying the outdoor courtyard area. The children's assessment: "it still feels like Mercy Center of the Arts". What better endorsement could there be? Thank you to Mount Carmel Parish for your warm welcome.
