School Notes

  • Preschool should be fun, and at Sacred Heart Preschool it is fun. It’s fun to learn, be creative and explore new things.It’s fun to make new friends, learn respect of self and others, and become self-confident. It’s fun being in a happy and active place where your zest for learning is nurtured. It’s fun taking your first steps on the path to excellence!

Rooms allow for the 1- and 2-year-old students to play, explore and learn in a setting planned with their developmental needs in mind.
