Little Halos Bilingual Day School is a ministry of St. Athanasius the Great Greek Orthodox Church, located in Arlington, MA. The Day school is dedicated to providing preschool children with a spiritually grounded environment for their education in Greek and English, and their growth and development.
The the need for creating such a school to educate the children at an early age is now lead by Argyro Nikoletos, to execute and direct this mission. Argyro has great passion and patience to develop and nurture the academic and cultural growth of each child enrolled in the school. Little Halos began in September 2006.
The St. Athanasius Little Halos Bilingual Day School is committed to providing children with a quality education that emphasizes social, emotional, academic, cultural, and spiritual development through play, and both emergent and didactic curricula.
Our belief is that children are active learners, explorers, experimenters, storytellers, and artists. In our child-centered classrooms, children have many opportunities to learn about literacy, numeracy, democratic and empathetic citizenship, as well as Greek culture and Orthodox religion.
They accomplish this through play, the fundamental building block of academic learning for young children. All learning occurs in a Greek/English bilingual context as it fosters the building of creative and flexible brains and minds.
Little Halos Philosophy
For over 15 years, our goal has been to educate children by developing their social emotional, cognitive and physical skills with additional exposure to Hellenic culture and Orthodox Christianity all while learning Greek and English at the same.
Little Halos Bilingual Preschool, is a great way to become immersed into a bilingual environment regardless your ethnic background and religion.
Emphasis is given on the development of social and independent skills by allowing and encouraging them to take responsibility for themselves whenever possible.
Our school offers a loving and caring environment where safety of the children is a priority.
