St. Cecilia Preschool Mission

Saint Cecilia Preschool is an early childhood education program for children 3 to 5 years old. We use a thematic-based curriculum to introduce your child to their first academic experience. The learning themes incorporate Bible stories as well as pre-reading, math, science, and social concepts. The children also have less-structured time for self-directed discovery.  As children experience a positive and loving learning environment, they build a foundation in the Catholic faith. Our classroom atmosphere is created to encourage and promote cooperation, sharing, respect, independence and caring. Family communication and involvement is ongoing, and parents are always welcome to discuss their child’s progress with our teachers.
