Preschool

Our Philosophy:

We create a Catholic environment where all kinds of learners succeed. Our classrooms are flexible— allowing us the freedom to tailor instruction and creative play for each student. Given the enormous variation among children of the same age, curriculum, teaching and interactions with children are as individualized as possible. Our teachers get to know each child in their class well. Responding to each child’s unique needs is fundamental to ensuring our children are confident, happy and engaged young learners preparing for kindergarten.

—Chad & Tina White, Preschool Parents

“We love knowing our children are happy, learning, having fun and, most of all, safe with our St. Brigid family.”
—Anthony & Heather Sola, Preschool Parents


Curriculum Goals:

Our curriculum addresses cognitive, social, emotional, spiritual and physical development of the whole child, all in a Catholic environment that will further enhance and facilitate the growth and development of each child. We pride ourselves on:

  • Encouraging students to successfully function in a group of peers through
    cooperation, sharing, friendship and values
  • Offering experiences that support and encourage emerging literacy
  • Providing concrete experiences with learning activities and problem-solving
  • Fostering an environment that nurtures and values the development of children as individuals, and acknowledges and develops the curiosity and enthusiasm inherent in all young children
  • Modeling a cooperative and supportive partnership between children, teachers and parents, and establishing a positive connection between home and school
