Preschool

Our Philosophy

The staff of the Preschool Program believes that each child is a gift from God, unique and special. Qualified teachers and small class size allow each child to develop at his or her own pace, interest and learning style.
 
The Preschool Program is committed to fostering wonder and delight in learning. The curriculum is designed to nurture a positive sense of self and respect for others; to support and develop emerging social and emotional skills; to encourage creative expression and problem solving; to create an environment where young children can discover God and experience His love.

Our Program

The Master's School Preschool Program offers the following programs for preschool children. Eligibility is based on birth date. Children in the three- or four-year-old programs must be of age by December 31 of the year in which they start school.

Four-Year-Olds:

We encourage parent involvement through guest readers, seasonal celebrations, and special events such as our Christmas Program, Mother Child Tea, Father Child Day, and end of the year Four-Year-Olds Blessing Ceremony. Our preschool families are also welcome to participate in our Lower School Parent Teacher League (PTL) community events such as Father Daughter Dance, Mother Son Challenge, and others as scheduled.
