Preschool

Preschool Overview

Welcome to St. Brigid Preschool – a place where your child can learn and grow, both intellectually and spiritually. We encourage you to take the time to review our focus, goals and programs. Your child’s development is our sole priority. And our integrated approach to learning will give him/her a multi-faceted learning experience.

Focus

St. Brigid Preschool is committed to an environment developmentally appropriate for the young child age 3-5 years old. By working closely with parents, who are viewed as primary educators of their children, the preschool staff will assist each child to reach his or her maximum ability; spiritually, intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically. Play is a fundamental part of our program as it is through play that children come to know and appreciate God’s world, learn cooperation, problem-solving, language and mathematics, develop curiosity, self-esteem, self-direction, and values
