We absolutely love the pre-school program at St. Mark's. The teachers, staff and vice-principal who run the pre-school truly care about each child and go out of their way to make each child feel special and loved. They keep the kids busy doing art, music, sensory bins, learning their numbers/letters/writing their name and lots of gym/outdoor play.
