Preschool Program


Our Preschool Program provides a fun, caring and educational environment for your 3-5 year old child. Children learn and grow in a Catholic values-centered community that fosters emotional and academic growth, nurtures virtue, and inspires creativity. Our program offers a safe, nurturing setting for students to explore a full range of developmentally appropriate learning experiences in a faith-based setting. Your child will make new friends, grow in faith and knowledge, and blossom emotionally and spiritually.

  • Activities include art, music, physical activity, creative learning, story time and more
  • Maximum 10:1 child-to-staff ratio with committed and faith-filled staff
  • Periodic field trips & learning excursions
  • Smooth and comfortable transition to our Kindergarten through 8th grade school
