St. Mary Preschool Program

About Our Preschool Program

The St. Mary Preschool program was established nearly 30 years ago. It is designed to be the first step in a great Catholic education.

With a curriculum provided by the Diocese of Columbus and guided by the Ohio Department of Education, our preschool staff is highly qualified in early childhood education. Dedicated to yearly in-service training on child development, St. Mary Preschool teachers will be participating in the “Step Up to Quality” program.

Our goal is to provide a safe, loving, Christian atmosphere was our staff nurtures each child at their individual level of development. Children are encouraged to experience learning at their own speed. Our teachers and aides understand that children enter our program with their own unique set of skills and experiences. They will leave our St. Mary Preschool with early literacy and math skills, as well as social skills and a greater sense of the world around them.  St. Mary students will be given opportunities to use and share existing skills and learn new skills that will foster self-confidence, personal respect, individuality, and a love of learning.
