St. Ann's Preschool celebrates the philosophy that children learn by doing.
Shrieks of laughter reverberate through the chilly air as preschoolers, oblivious to the January temperatures, work out their wiggles. It is a well-earned break from the rigorous curriculum at St. Ann’s Preschool, which puts the under-6 set through its paces each weekday.
The preschool, established nearly 40 years ago, is a cornerstone of St. Ann’s religious education ministry. Its dedicated teachers inspire 140 little ones by fostering an environment that develops a positive attitude toward learning. The preschool is led by Nancy Wohlfrom, who was named Preschool Director of the Year in 2018 by the Archdiocese of Atlanta.
“St. Ann is a warm and nurturing preschool and the families are blessed to have such a wonderful place for their children to learn and grow,” writes Mary Jo Nichol, director of preschools for the archdiocese, in an annual review of the program.
To celebrate Catholic Schools Week, preschoolers will be filling shoeboxes with supplies and surprises for children in a group foster home. The annual event helps children understand one of the La Salette charisms, reaching out to the alienated, and celebrates the philosophy that children learn best by doing.
