Pre-Kindergarten: A Time of Growth

Rooted in the Catholic faith, Maryknoll School is a nurturing and welcoming community that values academic innovation and excellence, lifelong learning, service to others, and the courage to imitate Jesus by word and example.

The year before kindergarten is a time of tremendous growth. As a parent you want your child to enjoy this stage while building the right skills for the steps ahead. We offer a program that gives you both, teachers who cherish this important time, and curriculum recognized by parents and teachers for helping children build the social and academic skills necessary to be ready for school.

Our Pre-Kindergarten students work on reading, writing, math concepts, critical thinking, letter/word recognition, addition & subtraction, patterns, problem-solving, building social skills, sharing, and more!

Our program provides opportunities for each child to cultivate knowledge, self-discipline, creativity, and spiritual and physical growth. We believe in creating a warm and loving environment where children can learn about themselves, gain an understanding of others and develop strong self-esteem.

Children enrolled in our Pre-Kindergarten program will participate in activities that include art, language development, math, music and movement, science, and outdoor play.
