Welcome to St. Francis' Early Childhood Program

Welcome to St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School's Early Childhood Program.  This program strives to provide a nurturing environment to promote social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth for our Preschool (3 years old on or before September 1st) and Pre-K (4 years old on or before September 1st) students. With a faith-based focus and caring staff, we create a warm and happy place for children to learn and grow. We bridge the gap between home and school for our youngest students to create a blend of developmentally appropriate academics and play to foster the whole child.

Here at St. Francis, we believe that:

  •      Each student is a special child of God
  •      Children learn best about God’s world through experimentation and exploration
  •      Developmentally appropriate activities and play are the best avenues of learning
  •      A loving environment fosters children's ability to develop to their fullest potential
  •      The family and home life is the primary place for each child’s learning
  •      Building relationships with parents and promoting family participation benefits children's success

The early childhood staff and I are very passionate about working here at St. Francis with the youngest of God's gifts.
