St. Francis Of Assisi School

At St. Francis of Assisi school we will present a developmentally appropriate program that allows children to learn at their own pace through hands on activities.
Our program will develop the whole child in an atmosphere of encouragement, affection, and creativity. Our preschool will set the foundation for Catholic learning with a curriculum that is centered on Catholic values.
We will emphasize these values through singing, stories, and prayer before snack-time.
It is our mission to help children learn and respect themselves and others, to celebrate diversity and uniqueness.
We believe that by allowing children to make choices, and by giving them the opportunity to learn through experimentation, we will help them develop a life long enthusiasm for learning.
