At Saint Joseph Parish Preschool, our commitment is to provide a creative learning environment for the young child. Interaction with other children and adults, in an atmosphere of Christian love and concern, promotes the healthy development of each child. Learning experiences and play activities encourage spiritual, intellectual, social and physical growth.


The program is designed to help the child foster a sequence of learning habits, initial adjustment to school, independent learning, daily living skills, and sensory-motor activities; the fundamentals of reading, writing, and number readiness; together with a physical, spiritual, emotional, and social maturity.
