Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

This is our Montessori based religious education program for the youngest child. In our learning environment, our atrium, we listen to God with the children and ponder the mysteries and parables. Our infant and toddler atrium serves children ages 0-3. Our level I atrium serves children ages 3-6. Our level II atrium serves children ages 6-9.  (Level I and Level II are now full for the 22-23 school year)

All levels will be offered on Wednesday from 4-6pm, and we will also offer an additional level I on Friday mornings from 9-11.

Parents of of children in the infant and toddler atrium are strongly encouraged to stay with the child and observe. This is helpful for the child and the catechist at this level.

Registration for CGS is $30 per child.

Please call Maureen Stone at 515-537-3710 or Amanda Halbur at 515-371-0490 for more specific information. Assistants are needed in each atrium and for snack/bathroom breaks. Please let us know if you are interested.
