Celebrating 26 Years of Learning Fun
St. Anthony's Pre-School



Physical Environment
Our school is located in the parish center of St. Anthony’s church which provides the space and equipment necessary for healthful and happy experiences. Individual classrooms provide a light, cheerful and comfortable place to work on puzzles, games, arts and crafts and a quiet corner for stories. The outdoor play area is a fenced-in secure environment equipped with climbing spaces, slides, tunnels and more.
Our Philosophy at St.Anthony’s Pre-School
The early childhood program offers time and space for young children where they are free to play, explore and imagine. It is designed to lead them from wonder to discovery and from investigation to affirmation. It provides the opportunity for all children to associate pleasure with learning so that each one feels good about her or himself. In the early childhood program, the teacher collaborates with children. Her adult encouragement and example are among the most important factors which influence faith development. As collaborator, the teacher fosters a deeper awareness of God’s presence. The teacher offers each child space to experience the joy of learning at his or her own capacity and pace.
