Preschool & Pre-Kindergarten

Come Grow with Us! The OMPH Preschool (age 3) and Pre-Kindergarten Programs are offered to children who are 3 and 4 years old by September 1. The programs provide activities which are developmentally appropriate in a Catholic environment. Planned indoor and outdoor activities promote physical, social and spiritual growth. Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten programs are held Monday through Friday from 8:00am - 2:45pm. An on-site after school program is available until 5:30pm.


Mrs. Erin Ruscigno, Preschool Teacher

My name is Erin Ruscigno and I am one of the Preschool teachers. I have a bachelor’s degree in English Education from Kean University and am certified to teach PreK-4. I am currently working on a master’s degree in Trauma-Informed Curriculum and Instruction from Elizabethtown College. This is my 7th year as a classroom teacher. I have experience teaching 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, 4th and 5th Grade Math and Science, and middle school ELA. Before coming to OMPH School, I taught in charter schools in Newark and Asbury Park, New Jersey. My husband and I have two sons and we are parishioners at St. James. I feel so blessed to be teaching preschool at Our Mother of Perpetual Help!


Mrs. Andrea Covey, Preschool Aide

My name is Andrea Covey. I attended nine years of Catholic elementary school and graduated from Lancaster Catholic High School. I went on to graduate from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Environmental Science/Biology. After school I worked at Lancaster Laboratories for 11 years before becoming a stay-at-home mom. Along with my husband and three daughters, I am an active member of St. James parish in Lititz. Two of my daughters attend OMPH. My oldest daughter graduated from OMPH School and is now at Lancaster Catholic. After volunteering at school for many years I am now honored to be given the opportunity to be here helping the youngest of our school’s students grow academically and spiritually.
