Holy Family celebrates heritage

Published 12:00 am Friday, January 29, 2010

Catholic Schools around the world have designated the last week of January to celebrate Catholic Schools Week since 1974. This year’s theme is Catholic Schools-Dividends For Life: Faith, Knowledge, Discipline and Morals.

At Holy Family Early Learning Center, our mission is to provide an educational program dedicated to fostering the spiritual, intellectual and physical growth of children. Based on the gospel message, the center helps children develop academic skills and encourages intellectual curiosity as well as promotes social, psychological and physical development.

Working with parents, Holy Family Early Learning Center helps children develop skills, talents and values that will enable them to lead faith-filled, productive and rewarding lives.
