Mrs. Dickson holds a Bachelor of Education in Early Childhood Education from Rowen University. She taught several years of Pre-School and then moved to Kindergarten in 1989.

Kindergarten is a transition from Pre-School to First Grade. The focus is on readiness skills in reading and math. The new Reading Street reading program encourages emergent readers and develops phonemic awareness. Differentiated instruction provides opportunities for success at all ability levels. Learning centers stress small group instruction. Letter formation is introduced in handwriting. Students learn science, social studies, computer, library, art, Spanish, music and P.E.

The school day is Christ centered. Prayers, daily religious instruction and weekly Mass support our apostolic mission. The Kindergarten is a nurturing, child centered environment where the whole child is educated spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, socially and physically.
