Ursuline Academy’s Early Childhood Program is founded on the belief that students begin to discover the joy of learning at an early age. Our Early Childhood program provides a strong academic foundation, teaching students as young as 3 to think critically about the world around them while encouraging them to explore their interests and creativity. Ursuline’s Early Childhood program sets the stage for students to develop foundational skills to be effective and engaged learners. Students learn to analyze, synthesize and think critically, to listen carefully and ask questions, to appreciate diverse perspectives, and to cooperate and collaborate with others. These formative education years prepare your child for future success throughout school and in their lives beyond.
