Social emotional skills development The Children’s Learning Center at Prince of Peace Catholic School promotes Catholic values in a nurturing, dynamic learning community by providing for the intellectual, emotional, and spiritual growth of each student and by building a strong foundation for lifelong success.
Math skills development Our teachers use multiple opportunities throughout the day to help your child build competence in math. Developing number concepts such as rote counting & one-to-one correspondence are usually the earliest skills to develop. Patterns and relationships are also important and set the foundation for geometry and spatial sense. Finally, teachers focus on measurement and data collection, both of which are equally useful in our next content area.
Speech development We will provide learning experiences and an environment that foster increased vocabulary and oral language skills. Additionally, the students work on phonological awareness, or the ability to hear and understand the different sounds of the spoken language.
Reading skills development Your child will also be exposed to the more conventional components of literacy: knowledge of print, letters and words, comprehension skills. We also focus on ENJOYMENT of literacy experiences, as children who are read to, become children who are readers!
Typical day and activities The Children’s Learning Center at Prince of Peace Catholic School follows the goals and objectives set forth by The Diocese of Dallas. This is our Preschool for children ages 3-5. The Diocesan Preschool Curriculum contains and extends the Essential Elements of the Texas Education Agency.

Approach to addressing and preventing bullying The Virtue-Based Restorative Discipline (VBRD) is a holy habit program that we have adopted not only as our anti-bullying program, but as a new way to approach each day here at Prince of Peace Catholic School. We begin each day with the following words: "Today I ask you to live a life of virtues so that these Holy Habits will lead you to make good choices throughout the day."
