Pastor and Program Sponsor









Welcome to Little Angels Academy, a premier early childhood educational program offered by St. Andrew the Apostle Church! We are delighted that you are considering enrolling your child in this outstanding Preschool program!  St. Andrew the Apostle Preschool – Little Angels Academy; provides an excellent academically-oriented curriculum within a nurturing, caring and supportive environment.  Our Preschool has been designed to enable each child to develop socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically within a supportive Christian learning environment.  With an age-appropriate curriculum that has been designed to promote self-esteem and ensure future academic success, your child will be exposed to well-designed educational and developmental learning opportunities, under the supervision and guidance of our experienced and credentialed faculty and staff. 

Since becoming our Pastor in 2010, Msgr. Marucci immediately made the decision that Little Angels Academy would become the premier preschool in the area.  His primary goal and objective as Program Sponsor is to make Little Angels a true academy for early childhood development.  Little Angels is not a daycare facility nor a nursery school.  It is an academically oriented early childhood education program that, through the use of award-winning curricula, outstanding faculty, and excellent academic resources will give your child the best possible start in life.  We guarantee that your child will be provided with a safe, secure, loving and nurturing environment that will help your child gain the confidence he or she needs to succeed. 

The following are the unique attributes of Little Angels Academy:   First, we offer an award-winning Language Arts and Literacy program that has been proven to promote phonological and phonemic awareness which leads to reading readiness and enhanced self-confidence.  Second, our Faith Formation program is specifically designed for three and four-year-old children and serves to provide an excellent foundation for understanding God’s love and the goodness of all of God’s creation. 

Third, creativity and a love of learning are encouraged in all of our classroom activities throughout the curriculum.  Additional units of study in Social and Emotional Development, Creative Arts, Health Safety & Physical Education, Science, Math, Social Studies, Family & Life Skills, and World Languages are also introduced into the curriculum as developmentally and age appropriate lessons, particularly suited for children age 3-6.  Our small class sizes and excellent student / teacher ratios provide your child with the individual attention that will ensure their success and allow them to develop the self-confidence that leads to a lifelong love of learning. 

Our experienced faculty and staff look forward to working with you to provide your child with the fundamental tools and experiences that are essential for their individual growth and development.  We are committed to providing a safe, caring and nurturing environment for your child that will optimize your child’s learning and developmental opportunities and will serve to provide your child with the advantages that can be realized as a result from an outstanding early childhood education program.

Best wishes to you and your child for a very happy and successful year at Little Angels Academy!  If you have any questions, would like to tour our school or would like more information about our Academy, please don't hesitate to contact us.
