Welcome to Saint Mark’s School Preschool! Our program builds upon a child’s natural curiosity to discover and understand their world through the implementation of developmentally appropriate practice in creative and supportive learning environments. We use a whole child approach by encouraging all aspects of children’s development and use a hands-on, minds-on philosophy in which children are actively engaged in purposeful activities to lay a solid foundation for future learning.

Additionally, our early childhood education program enhances and facilitates children’s construction of their own powers of thinking and develops their sense of wonder by providing opportunities to engage in concrete learning experiences and to explore various avenues for creative expression.

Our highly qualified and experienced teachers implement the best of reflective teaching practices and provide children with opportunities to develop self-confidence and an enthusiasm for learning through a combination of whole group instruction, center-based learning activities, and individualized attention.

 It is reflective of the lessons of kindness, gratitude, and respect for those around us that were instilled in us at Saint Mark’s.
