St. Joseph Preschool has been established as a service and ministry to the families and children of the surrounding community.  It has been designed to nurture the spiritual, mental, emotional, social, and physical development of each child that is in our program.  We believe that each child is a unique individual and that children will grow at their optimal rate.  We acknowledge that the parents are the primary educators of the child and we would like to offer the child an opportunity for growth in a child-size atmosphere that will include but is not limited to prayer, music, drama, outdoor play, problem solving, sharing time, small and large motor skills, reading and math readiness, science and discovery, and art.
 
Our Purpose is to provide a secure environment that is safe, clean, healthy, and oriented to children inside and outdoors, thus allowing the children to enjoy stimulating experiences in different activity areas.
 
We Believe that the strength of the school is Christ centered.  Christ is the integrating factor around which all activities and subject matter are correlated.
