I am delighted to teach preschool here at St. Mary.  I have over twenty years experience teaching preschool in the Catholic school.  The preschool program at St. Mary focuses on promoting the social, emotional, cognitive, physical and spiritual growth and development of each child.  The preschool program offers daily opportunities for each child to use their imagination and become engaged with hands on experiences. Academically and spiritually each child will begin to develop a deeper understanding of the world around them.  The daily lessons gently guide each child to appreciate the abundant love of God enhancing respect, kindness and love for themselves an others.  As their journey begins in preschool at St. Mary, the children will develop the sense that learning is fun and the friendships they develop will be life-long friendships.
