The Saint Joseph Parish Preschool program prepares children ages 2 ½ - 5 years, for kindergarten in a play-based environment with age-appropriate curriculum. We offer a Catholic environment for children that is focused on creativity, enhanced learning and development. Our unique scheduling option allows families to choose the number of days their child attends preschool.
Our preschool program lets children direct many of their own activities, as well as opportunities to effectively work with their peers. Each classroom has interest learning centers that provide opportunities for the children to practice skills enhancing all areas of development.
