SMA Pre-K3 / Pre-K4 / K Program Information

Saint Michael the Archangel Catholic School offers two Pre-Kindergarten programs, one for children two years away from Kindergarten (Pre-K3), one for children who will be entering Kindergarten the following school year (Pre-K4) and Kindergarten.

Our Pre-K 3/4/ K Programs offer children a nurturing learning environment that is caring, challenging, hands on, and academically developmental. Since we believe our children should enjoy their time here, there are also many fun activities.Appropriate child-centered experiences are provided to stimulate inquisitiveness and to develop the child’s self-assurance and independence.
Our programs provide many hands-on-learning experiences in an academic readiness environment. Language is developed through a multitude of methods. Songs, plays, poems, and stories are just some of them. Centers are provided where children can experience a variety of sensory experiences in an individual or group setting. Gross and fine motor skills are developed through physical activities, play, and the creative arts. Through songs, storytelling of scripture, prayers, games, and art activities, the children learn about God's great love for each of us. Pre K 3 / Pre K 4 and Kindergarten are also part of the NDS Hot Lunch Program. (Please note: soda and fast foods are prohibited in our program.) Our children will also be given technology instruction in our computer lab.

To provide the most up-to-date communication, the Pre-K 3 / 4 / Programs have their own websites linked to the school’s main website at www. sma-pa.org at the Faculty Page.  The Kindergarten program is also  linked.

If you are interested in registering your child in one of our fine programs, please call our school at 215-943-0222,

For Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in
battle, be our protection against the
wickedness and snares of the devil; may god
rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do you, o
Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of
God, thrust into hell satan and all evil spirits
who wander through the world for the ruin
of souls. Amen.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in
battle, that we may not perish in the fearful
judgement.

Saint Michael, first champion of the
kingship of Christ, pray for us.

God our Father, in a wonderful way you
guide the work of angels and human being.
May those who serve you constantly in
heaven keep our lives safe from all harm on
earth. Grant this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Saint Michael the Archangel, pray for us.

Pledge for Peace

With the help of Jesus, I pledge for this day to have a peaceful heart and a peaceful mind. I will try to keep peace in my school, in my home and in my world.
