General School Mission

At St. Aemilian Preschool, Inc., we have provided high-quality early childhood programs for families with young children for almost 40 years. Our teachers, all with four-year degrees, plan stimulating, hands-on educational activities that enrich the cognitive, social, emotional, physical and creative development of each child. By providing developmentally appropriate experiences for all children, we foster independence and a love of learning in a warm, nurturing and safe environment. Accredited by the NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) since 1993, we adhere to the highest standards that represent the mark of quality in early childhood education. St. Aemilian Preschool, Inc., is a private, nonprofit, nonsectarian preschool.
