The St. Mary Catholic Schools (SMCS) Early Childhood Program provides a Christian environment and fosters positive values and attitudes. Warm and engaging teachers nurture the spiritual, emotional, intellectual, social and physical developmental growth of each young child. Our preschool and pre-kindergarten teachers cultivate each child’s natural curiosity for learning and encourage self-motivation and independence, promoting an awareness and acceptance of each person’s uniqueness. A positive self-image is developed through recognizing God’s many gifts and talents of every child.
