Our Philosophy of Education
PAIDEIA Bilingual Preschool Program was created to support the families of our community as well as all who are enthusiastic and passionate about the Hellenic ideas, history and culture by providing the best education possible.
Paideia Preschool offers a loving and safe environment, an enriching and challenging curriculum that prepares students two to five years old for their next developmental level, and enhances their moral and spiritual growth. The different Programs (Half-Day, Full-Day, 3-Days or 5-days a week) are open to all families who wish to enrich their children’s education by introducing them to the Greek language, Hellenic culture and the Greek Orthodox faith. Paideia aims to help the child develop an appreciation for learning. Our goals are to promote the physical, emotional, cognitive and spiritual development of our children. We encourage the unique growth of each child using a Greek/English bilingual curriculum through music, fun and play.
- Physical: Developing fine and gross motor and sensory skills.
- Emotional: Developing positive self-concept and skills to communicate effectively.
- Cognitive: Developing speaking and early reading skills in English and Greek, as well as skills to think creatively.
- Spiritual: Acquire the knowledge to celebrate the Orthodox religion.
Saint Katherine PAIDEIA Bilingual Preschool incorporates the ancient Hellenistic Paideia emphasis on instilling a love of learning and in educating the “whole” person. It uses a modern curriculum based on Multiple Intelligences Theory to provide a classroom environment that encourages children to learn in different ways, from each other, and to become self-motivated, independent and life-long learners. Using a holistic approach to early education, PAIDEIA strives to help every child achieve their educational potential while instilling in each of them a belief in their individual exceptional spirit.
