We offer Christian based, pre-kindergarten program which prepares the children to enter kindergarten with advanced skills. At St. Mary’s Preschool, our mission is to provide a quality traditional preschool opportunity for children ages 3 to 5. We feel it is important to educate the whole child, promoting physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of young children. We believe that each child is a special gift entrusted in our care.  All of our teachers love working with children, and three are director qualified. We are sponsored by The Catholic Communities of St. Clare and St. Mary’s.  We are accredited by NAEYC (National Association Education of Young Children) since 1994. We follow the curriculum of Archdiocese of Denver and CAEYC (Colorado Association for the Education of Young Children). Self-paced controlled play is the best way for children to learn.  Play touches on every aspect of development and learning.  Children at play are actively involved in creating themes, exploring and establishing environments, solving problems, and developing shared understandings. All of our teachers are trained in early childhood education.  In order to provide a quality childhood educational experience for each child, the ratio of teachers to students i no more than seven children to one teacher. Our Christian-based environment will bring attention to God’s living presence in their lives.
