The Early Childhood Education Department of Our Lady of Perpetual Help School is the department that caters boys and girls from three (3) to five (5) years of age. Here, an opportunity for the holistic growth and development of every individual child that are necessary for his lifelong learning is being provided.
Developmentally appropriate approaches for a creative, thematic, and integrated curriculum are employed, to achieve the intellectual, emotional, physical, social, aesthetic and spiritual development of a human being. Wherein, as Palmer defines, spirituality as “not something that needs to be brought into or added onto the curriculum, but it is at the heart of every subject we teach. Thus, for this school year, in conformity with the K to 12 Basic Education Program and as a response to the international perspective of an Early Childhood Education, the ECED will regularly deal with spiritual dimension of a Holistic Education
Through an integrative approach that employs an integrative and interactive teaching-learning strategies, as well as child-centered learning experiences, the child acquires knowledge and develops socio-emotional values while enjoying or playing games, exploring his physical abilities, and learning to get along with others

Here, life in the ECED is a journey of exploration and discovery thru carefully planned weekly set of activities that are structured to enhance development.
