Following in His Steps of Faith


At St. Francis of Assisi Preschool, our educators implement the curriculum through a Catholic lens. The Gospel teachings and Catholic Christian Values that are central to our Faith are infused into all we do. Children will become more aware of God and the world He gave us through classroom experiences such as stories, songs, imaginative play, and discovery. Children are also offered opportunities to encounter real life connections to live out our faith through special events: Little Francis CARES, Come Follow Me, and Friar visits.  We believe the faith shared with parents, teachers, and students is nourished by prayer and worship within the total life of the school and parish community. The Preschool environment will encourage the children to develop greater self-esteem and respect for others as we strive to help each individual develop to his/her potential. Celebrating our beautiful Catholic traditions and rituals with our preschoolers makes our faith even more rich.
