Preschool Programs for 3 to 5 Year Olds
In our preschool programs, each child grows academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually at his or her own pace.
We strive to develop a student who has a positive self-image, respects the rights of others, sees the wonders of God in the world around him or her, and is a self-learner.
The program is enhanced by weekly lessons in music, physical education, religion, and library, and daily art activities.
Children must be 3 by August 31 and potty trained.
