Preschool at the St. Basil Campus

Preschool is the perfect time to begin a new and educational adventure. St. Michael School provides a faith-filled environment where children are encouraged to explore their curiosity and their imagination. New friendships are fostered and built on treating everyone with love and respect. No two children learn in the same way or at the same pace. We surround our early learners with caring adults who believe early childhood is where the love of learning begins.

Learning in preschool is a community effort, with a firm partnership between a teacher and aide for each class. Creativity guides conversations and storytelling in the classroom, while science experiments show that learning can be fun. Through it all, our preschool students are reminded that they are God’s children and loved by Him, as well as a larger school & parish community. The preschool program has a strong curriculum that provides developmentally-appropriate programs, builds relationships with the child and family, and includes a variety of stimulating learning activities. While covering the traditional curriculum of  religion, language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science, we also provide access to our specials, including physical education, art and music. Classes focus on teaching our youngest learners motor skills, social skills, language development, rhythmic movement, cooperation, and sharing - all in a faith-based environment. 

You will find that FAITH is what makes the difference in an education at St. Michael School Preschool. Rooted in the curriculum of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, the spirituality that is nourished in the "Atrium" environment permeates the entire school community, as well as assists each family in living their faith more authentically at home, as it is a place of meaningful work through which the child can have a conversation with God. And our teachers reflect with our students on the questions generated by the presentations with the materials offered, to aid the student's reflection.


To go a step further, by the end of preschool at St. Michael, your children are ready to be passionate life-long learners and are fully prepared to continue the rigors of Catholic education in St. Michael Kindergarten

Some additional notes for new parents include the knowledge that your child is always safe when they are in our care. Our school building has a secure-entry system on each door, as well as an officer to assist students as they enter and exit the building. The preschool has the support of our professional staff and has access to all facilities on the campus including the library, gymnasium, playground, music room, and Church.
