Pre-Kindergarten at Saint Bernadette offers an opportunity for your child to begin their school experience in a nurturing, faith-filled environment. Your child will explore our world in a play-based curriculum and develop the skills needed to be ready for Kindergarten.
Our Pre-K program recognizes that your child is a unique gift from God, and we will work with you to foster your child's social and emotional development. Faith will be at the center of every part of your child's day, as Catholic values are integrated across the curriculum. You will cherish the relationships that develop between your child, new friends, and loving teachers during your family’s years at Saint Bernadette!
Your child will participate in a balance of teacher-directed and child-selected activities that will support social, emotional, physical, spiritual, and cognitive growth. Your child will be introduced to Spanish, music, science, math, technology, art and physical activities. Pre-literacy skills will help your child become a life-long learner.
Our diverse, faith-based community cherishes the traditions that begin in preschool and extend through the years, culminating in your child graduating from eighth grade. These traditions are rooted in faith and bring our community together to worship, celebrate, and support one another.
