St. Catherine of Siena Preschool & Mother’s Day Out was established in 1984 to provide a ministry to the people of our community. We feel that the early education of our children is significantly important and we are proud to offer this training within the framework of our spiritual tradition. We believe every person needs a relationship with God and with His Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. St. Catherine of Siena Preschool and Mother’s Day Out provides an atmosphere which will encourage the development of the whole child; academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually.
A diverse, friendly, relaxed atmosphere, without regimentation, is the basis of the school’s daily program.
Our Preschool Program includes teacher-planned projects with a strong emphasis in the fields of language arts, science, math and art activities, which encourage self-expression and creativity, are a prominent part of the child’s day. Age-appropriate activities are planned with attention to the different needs, interest, and developmental levels of each child. Various manipulatives, as well as quiet learning games and learning centers are available at all times. In addition, Music, Creative Movement, and Chapel are also a part of our curriculum along with Spanish, which is offered to our 4-Year Old Preschool & PreK classes. Christian values are emphasized in all activities.
Our Mother’s Day Out Program’s mission is to ensure that your child’s first school experience will be both positive and nurturing. Our day consists of organized playtime, music, stories, arts and crafts, and outdoor play designed to stimulate the child’s natural curiosity and encourage the development of the whole child. Classroom activities change as the children grow through the year and each class has a monthly theme that is reinforced through stories, songs, and art activities.
