Philosophy:

We see our program as a partnership between school and home. We recognize that this stage in children’s lives is crucial in their social emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual development. The goal of the Preschool is to provide a well-rounded program to address the needs of the children, and to work with the home in this process. We believe and are committed to sharing the Gospel message through prayer, liturgy, reflection, study, and community service. We believe in and strive to create a community, which allows a child to learn and grow while developing a social sense of responsibility for self and others.
