Felician Children’s Center Holds First “Moving Up” Day

The students from the preschool and Montessori classes at the Felician Children’s Center in Jackson, Michigan, celebrated their “Moving Up” Day on June 2 and 3, to celebrate their transition to kindergarten.

After President Tracy Smith Jackson welcomed the families, many of whom have had their children enrolled since infancy, Sr. Mary Victoria Richardson, mission leader at the Felician Children’s Center, prayed for the families. Classroom teachers offered presentations and awards, everyone enjoyed some treats and the children sang songs for their families. Sr. Victoria said, “It was nice to get back to a little normalcy. The families loved the event.” 

The Felician Children's Center is a ministry of the Felician Sisters of North America in Jackson, Michigan, that offers child care, preschool and a Montessori program. To learn more, visit
