Why Little Blessings Pre-School at St. Mary’s?
We will help your “Little Ones” grow and develop! Love Learning New Things. Our teachers encourage laughter and sharing while children develop a love for learning that we believe endures for years to come.
Day by day, our incredibly dedicated teachers work with your young child to methodically develop and then gradually strengthen a solid and lasting foundation of knowledge, imagination, and self-confidence. Our teachers and staff will know your child’s name, their budding learning style, and their unique personality. We will engage them daily with focused expertise, unwavering commitment, and genuine love.
The Little Blessings Pre-School curriculum will provide hands-on learning that will prepare children for school success. Activities will enhance a child’s early educational development and will include craft and learning activities that help preschoolers understand numbers, letters, colors, and shapes. Children will enjoy poems, books, stories, games, finger-plays, arts and crafts, and physical activities.
