Mahalo for considering St. Philomena Early Learning Center as the first educational stepping stone for your child.
St. Philomena Early Learning Center, a private preschool operated by the St. Philomena Church under the direction of the Catholic School Department of the Diocese of Honolulu, has been in operation since 1978.
The Center offers a well-rounded academic foundation in a caring and nurturing environment.
Children as young as 15 months up through kindergarten can enjoy learning through the Montessori based principles offered here.
You’ll find a low teacher/student ratio in the classrooms and enjoy the flexibility of our year-round schooling.
We encourage and foster parent involvement in the development of your child to build a strong sense of family and community. St. Philomena Early Learning Center offers large play areas, daily hot lunches and snacks, a convenient, secured location and excellent preparation for further private schooling.
Below you will find our School Application. There is an $85 non-refundable registration fee. We invite you to tour our school grounds and observe our classrooms. Please call our office at 808-833-8080 to schedule your personal tour or to request more information.
Tours and classroom observations are scheduled from 8:30am -10:30am. St. Philomena Early Learning Center is always accepting applications for children to become a part of its family.
We look forward to having your child learn with us.
