Director's Message

Saint Mary's School enjoys a rich tradition of over 60 years of Christian education for children of the Santa Maria area. Saint Mary's Pre-school was established within the context of the present school philosophy.

Saint Mary's Pre-school, as a loving, nurturing, and safe environment, seeks to educate the whole child, forever mindful that parents are the primary educators of their children.

The pre-school provides age appropriate experiences for 2-years nine months to 3, 4, and 5 year olds in preparation for pre-kindergarten and/or kindergarten. The social, emotional, cognitive, creative, and physical selves are enhanced through hands-on experience in play.

The spiritual self is enhanced as the children are introduced to the loving goodness of God through songs, books, simple prayer, and positive social interaction.

The atmosphere is one in which children respect themselves, their peers, and their teachers.

Saint Mary's Pre-school is a Catholic pre-school that provides Christ's teachings, faith, love, and hope. It is a pre-school that prepares children for Kindergarten and helps them grow spiritually. Daily chapel time helps children grow closer to our Lord. Saint Mary's Pre-School offers a loving and caring environment. We hope to welcome you to our pre-school family.

In Christ,

Mary Rowell
