Day in the Life

General School Mission

"St. Pius X Early Care and Education Center was begun with one main goal in mind. We are here to give the children entrusted to us the best care. Our main goal is to provide good, loving care for your children -- care centered around Christ and His teachings.

"We want to make sure that we make your children happy, that we listen to them, and that we take care of them with tender loving care. The extra hug, the gentle touch, and the pat on the head are important. We strive to do these at all times; your children are our primary concern.

"How and what we teach your children is more important than how much we teach them. Learning must be fun for these little ones; so the periods of instruction are kept short and limited according to each age group.

"Play is the most important way for very young children to learn. Outside play directed play and free play are important in the learning process of young pre-school children. We want your children to enjoy their day while learning.

"At St. Pius X Early Care and Education Center we try to be kind and loving to your children, yet firm and consistent in discipline. We want your children to know that we truly love them, that they are special people, that this is their home away from home, and that we really care for them in Christ's name." -- Excerpted from the school's web site
