Early Childhood Education

Preschool & Kindergarten 

Early Childhood Education focuses on the minds, hearts & spirits of our youngest learners. We see your child as you do – as a child of God. We place significant importance on providing a great beginning at St. Michael. Your child’s love of learning starts here!

Talented teachers create a fun, creative environment. We nurture goodness building on what you teach at home: kindness, respect, helpfulness, compassion, and prayer. Confidence blooms from your child’s accomplishments, socialization and independence in our program.

Early Childhood Education includes 3-Year-Old Preschool through Kindergarten. Young learners learn best through play, movement and activity!

Beyond the above, Students in our ECE Program:

· Learn foundational precepts in reading, comprehension, writing, math, science,  religion, art and music
