Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"One goal of St. Mary's Preschool is to develop a love of learning for three-, four-, and five-year-old children. Through various activities children develop beginning concepts in math, reading, language arts, science, art, music, and physical education. Young students experience the joys of independent learning in our readiness room while working at "learning centers." They also enjoy participating in group games, discussions, and dramatizations.
Another goal is to help children develop attributes of Christian living. It is hoped each child will sense a loving God and will have an understanding of the important concepts of sharing, caring and loving.
At St. Mary's Preschool children will experience success and growth in self-esteem. They should have a better understanding of working and playing with their peers and an eagerness to explore the world around them.
