"We had children in both the pre-k and kindergarten at Overbrook last year. We were extremely impressed with some of the unique and creative ways in which they taught subjects such as arithmetic and reading; the teachers and assistants are experts at their jobs and always a pleasure to partner with, in the education of our children." -  Mrs. Christa Burbage, current OS parent

Prekindergarten


Books, letters, colors, numbers, prayer and playtime are the essential ingredients in Overbrook’s early childhood program, which began in 1986. In prekindergarten, teachers guide students using the Montessori approach as they begin to develop skills that will lead to reading, writing, math and a life-long love for learning in prekindergarten.


Students begin by learning the alphabet and continue learning to identify beginning sounds in words, begin to associate beginning sounds with objects and become aware of rhyming words on the road to reading and writing independently. In math lessons, students learn to recognize and reproduce simple patterns, recognize and name shapes, to count in sequence, and more. All academic lessons are geared to help students develop a sense of order, concentration, coordination and independence. In religion, students  learn about God’s goodness and His care and love for people, especially each child. In addition, students attend Catechesis of the Good Shepherd classes once a week to bring the faith to life and to draw them closer to God. Finally, students also explore the areas of art, music and technology.
