Preschool – “Falcon’s Nest”
St. Mary Early Childhood Program offers a 1/2 or full day option for our 3 & 4 year old students. We understand that an appropriate preschool experience offers a nurturing environment where children have the freedom to play, learn and interact with one another, discovering the wonders of God’s world in the course of a child-oriented day. St. Mary provides children opportunities to form relationships – with God, teachers and peers – and to grow in trust and respect while recognizing the worth of every individual.
We recognize that young children learn effectively through discovery and exploration while simultaneously we extend children’s thinking and knowledge by providing activities and resources determined by developmentally appropriate learning goals. Children develop self-confidence in a learning environment that affords opportunities for success and provides space to fail without fear.
