Welcome to SHP
Welcome to Sacred Heart Preschool! Supported by the best practices in preschool education, SHP offers a holistic foundation for lifelong learning. During the preschool years, children have the greatest capacity and excitement for learning, and the Sacred Heart Preschool approach fosters and nurtures this natural curiosity.
Director, Sacred Heart Preschool
We believe young children are capable, confident learners, whose natural curiosities should help shape their learning experiences. Children’s innate ability to learn through inquiry, ask questions, think critically, and develop problem-solving skills is what frames our pedagogical thinking. At SHP, we believe teachers are co-discoverers and guides who explore and experience learning alongside their students. Children who spend time in free play and in nature, and who have teachers who bring the learning outside, are regularly exposed to “traditional” subjects such as science and math... all while their learning is happening organically through inquiry and direct experience. These experiences give children a chance to do what they excel in - learn through play!
