  • The preschool and kindergarten at St. Maria’s allows each child to discover their own unique God-given talents and abilities.
  • It is a time for individual encouragement and to establish a wholeness through spiritual, emotional, physical, social and cognitive development.
  • Our preschool/kindergarten curriculum utilizes “hands-on” materials to present language, math, science, art and religion.
  • This curriculum will aid the child’s ability to observe, to discover, to concentrate and to make individual choices with his/her own thought process.
  • Research clearly indicates that play can facilitate healthy development and is essential for children to develop various cognitive, social and emotional skills and abilities.
  • Play may even provide the best context in which children grow and learn.
  • These activities will serve to enrich and challenge in an environment where each child is respected and loved as an individual.
