At Saint Brigid, children share their unexpected perceptions of the world and their unique way in which they express their imagination and learning within our school. Our intents and goals continue to help us this year as we consider how a thoughtfully developed environment can enhance your child’s experience here at the day school.
Our educators continue to facilitate and provoke children’s exploration on short- and long-term projects and guide experiences of joint, open-ended discovery and problem solving. To know how to plan and proceed with their work, our teachers listen and observe your children closely. Teachers ask questions; discover children’s ideas, hypotheses, and theories; and provide occasions for discovery and learning. Children are viewed at the day school in the image of Christ as strong, rich, and capable; as having preparedness, potential, curiosity, and interest in constructing their learning, negotiating with everything their environment brings to them.
One of the unique characteristics that you will notice about our school is the feeling of community, the welcoming spirit, and the sense of Catholic hospitality that reaches out to all who enter our church and Day School environment. As always, your participation as a parent is considered essential and takes many forms. Parents play an active part in their children’s learning in our school. The ideas and skills that the families bring to the school and, even more important, the exchange of ideas between parents and teachers, favor the development of our educational philosophy, which helps our educators view the participation of families as an intrinsic element of collegiality and as the integration of different wisdom's.
It is with this great enthusiasm that we go forward into the application season. We hope you will carefully and prayerfully read our website or packet. Hopefully, you have had the opportunity to meet the educators, visit the school, and become informed about Saint Brigid Day School before asking God to help you make your decision. We are confident that you will discover Saint Brigid Day School to be an excellent environment for your child. If we can assist in any way, please do not hesitate to contact us.
