St. Rose of Lima Pre-School

The Preschool years are the beginning of a strong foundation that molds children as individuals for the rest of their lives. St. Rose Preschool offers a developmentally appropriate early childhood education. We are child centered with opportunities for individual, small group and whole group instruction as well as spontaneous play and teacher guided activities.

The dynamic curriculum includes music, art, science, fine and gross motor development, language skills (Spanish and Mandarin) and social interacion, giving young children exposure and experience that is vital to their growing minds. A Buddy program pairs Preschool students with fourth graders for learning adventures that take them out of the classroom and in to the main school for assemblies, reading sessions, science lab experiments and cultural arts activities.


Our dedicated, innovative and professional teachers and staff understand the needs of these age groups as well as family schedules and situations.  Our programs reflect these changing needs.  Currently we offer:

2 and 3 Day options: 8:45-11:45 a.m.

Our youngest students begin their learning journey developing key skills such as active participation, collaboration and independent task completion


5 Day, Full Day Program (with A Four Day Option), 8:45-1:45 p.m.

Building upon the skills of the previous year, we introduce phonics, reading, math and provide a strong foundation for reading readiness and mathematical logic. We foster positive social and emotional growth in a nurturing environment.


Five days, 8:45-1:45 p.m.

Ideal for children with later birthdays who are note quite ready for full day Kindergarten. This program offers an opportunity to grow more in active participation, collaboration and independence while continuing to expand upon phonics, reading, math, writing and other foundational skills to prepare for a successful transition to full day Kindergarten.

Before and After School Care is available for a fee. Details available upon request.
