Preschool

Holy Family Preschool is a state licensed facility that is directed by teachers certified and trained in early childhood education. Holy Family Preschool recognizes that every child is unique. Naturally developing at their own pace, all children have the right to evolve and learn in an atmosphere that nurtures their individual needs.

Due to this strong belief, Holy Family Preschool offers families a Christ-centered environment that allows children the opportunity to explore, mature and play through age-appropriate experiences and activities. Cognitive, social, emotional, physical, and spiritual areas of development are fostered in each child through a developmental setting.

Preschool education is offered to children three years of age by October 1st of the year they are entering school for the three year-old program and four years of age by October 1st for the four year-old program in the 2015-2016 school year.  For the 2016-2017 school year they must be three and four years of age by September 1st of the year they are entering school.
