  • We maintain a program where children learn the art of cooperating together. Emphasis is placed upon developing positive social relationships with peers and adults.
  • We believe that children have the right to develop to their maximum abilities and that teachers have the responsibility to provide opportunities for this development to occur.
  • We promote Christian values through integration of prayer, Scripture and faith experiences into all areas of learning and to develop in our students a sense of their identity as Catholic Christians in a secular world.
  • We recognize parents as the primary educator of their children, and strive to involve them in the care and education of their children.
  • It is our philosophy that early childhood should be a time of fun, warmth, security, exploring and discovery.
  • Each child is viewed as a unique person and supported and encouraged to follow his/her own time for growth and development.

  • Our Preschool program provides a nurturing learning experience for children ages 3 and 4. We have full and half-day options available for our 4 year-old program and a half-day option for our 3 year-old program.
    Our Junior Kindergarten program is provided to bridge the "gap" between preschool and Kindergarten. You may choose to place your child in Junior Kindergarten if:
      Your son or daughter meets the Archdiocese cutoff (October 1), but would benefit from one more year of education formation.OR
    1. Your son or daughter does not meet the Archdiocese cutoff (October 1), but you feel he or she would benefit from a more rigorous academic schedule.
