Our Philosophy

We strive to teach our students to become independent and free thinkers in order to prepare them for elementary school. Whether your child is three or four years old, our Preschool program encourages education through a variety of stimulating experiences that enhance children’s growth and development. Our approach to early childhood education allows each child to grow at the appropriate rate: socially, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. Our unique curriculum is based upon a “student-centered” classroom, allowing students to feel involved in the subjects they wish to learn about.

About Us

St. Athanasius Preschool is a licensed facility with four full classrooms, serving three-year-olds and four-year-olds. These classes provide students with opportunities for social interaction, the development of gross and fine motor skills, exposure to technology, teamwork, and more. We aim to nurture young learners, helping them grow into independent individuals ready for kindergarten and beyond.

Our caring staff creates lesson plans focused on the whole child experience, meaning that they engage their students based on their personalized needs. In combination with our play-based teaching style and curriculum, we allow students to learn through their organic interests, while also exposing them to new things within the lessons.

In addition, St. Athanasius Preschool is proud to offer the expertise of both an occupational therapist and a speech therapist at no additional cost. This integrated support enhances our holistic approach to learning and development, benefiting students across multiple areas such as social-emotional, physical, spiritual, and educational growth.
