Pre-K-3 Year Old Program

Parent Testimonial:  "Our three children all absolutely loved this program. It's the gentle introduction to school my husband and I were looking for, with an experienced early childhood educator in a loving, calm and nurturing environment. It really helped our kids transition to full-day school the following year at Catholic Academy".

Pre-K 3-Year Old Program

Welcome to the Catholic Academy of West Buffalo Pre-K3 webpage!

The PreK 3 program for 2022-23 is currently on hold.  We had low enrollment and need a few more students to run the program.  Ms.  Traum would love to resume her wonderful program.  Please call 716-885-6111 for registration information.

Pre-K 3 year-old program overview:

The children will receive two specials per week.  Library will be on Tuesdays and Gym will be on Thursdays.  Please have your child wear sneakers both days as we also use the playground and go for walks! 

The hours of operation are Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 8:00a.m. to 11:00a.m.  The cost for the 2022-2023 school year is $40/week.  Children need to be potty-trained and 3-years-old by December 31st.

Children will be exposed to simple Math and Science concepts, imaginary play, early literacy experiences and socialization. 

What a great way to "ease" children into the school setting!
