Classes Offered

St. Mary’s has established a welcoming environment where I feel very comfortable leaving my child for hours each week. The program has changed each year and for the best. I appreciate all of the thought that goes in to planning each year.

The extended family feeling and the love the teachers have for their jobs and the children they teach thru faith centered focus.

Our whole family loves St Mary’s, not only the preschool, but the church as well, six of our family members have attended the preschool, one child started in the first class, can’t say enough good things about St. Mary’s.

Accommodations throughout the day was provided to my child to help address his developmental and emotional delays.

Miss Helen has a very gentle demeanor and encouraged trying. Based on the projects that came home Miss Helen supported making an attempt and allowed room for my child to complete the task as an individual which may not have always been how the task was meant to be done. This is very important at such a young age.

Loving staff, willingness to take advice, great playground, faith formation, security measures, classroom offerings, good classroom size, lunch Bunch, reasonably priced. It’s all great!

Miss Helen has done a great job of handling the girl drama and encouraging them to meet new friends within class.

I love the way you take care of our kids. I am never worried as I trust Miss Tina as if she is a close member of my family.

The compassion, care and commitment of the teachers and administrators is unbelievable. They are all fully engaged with the students and their families every step of the way. I am more than impressed with this school and our experience.

She is more social, shares her toys and thoughts freely and talks about Jesus and Mary

The teachers are amazing at knowing, greeting, and developing a relationship with each student through time spent together getting to know them.
