St. Mary Preschool


Jesus, however, called the children to himself and said, "Let the children come to me and do not prevent them;

for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these ..."


Luke 18:16


Our Philosophy


St. Mary Preschool provides developmentally appropriate activities where children can discover, for themselves, their ever changing world. Group activities are planned so that children learn the give and take of everyday living, sharing, taking turns, and respecting the rights of others. They learn to work and play happily, and to grow and develop emotionally, physically, socially, intellectually and spiritually at their own pace. Each day is centered around God’s command “love one another as I have loved you.” (John 15 :12)
