Pre-Kindergarten & Young 5s


St. Mary Pre-Kindergarten shares with the Church the mission of Jesus Christ. In a faith-filled academic environment, children grow in their relationship with God, the Catholic Church and the community. 

We also believe that parents and guardians are the child's first teachers, and we are in the partnership with the children's families.


PK and Young 5 begins the classical curriculum with emphasis on poetry &  handwriting.
