Our Mission is for each child to learn about God’s big world through activities that meet their spiritual, intellectual, social, aesthetic, emotional and physical needs.
The doors of St. Anthony preschool program were opened in the fall of 2006. This exciting, fast-paced ministry has brought tons of joy, laughter, and character to our campus, as all young children do.
Our program focuses on Christian values and Kindergarten readiness, including but not limited to:
Prayer, Respect, and Cooperation
Math Readiness - Number and Shape Recognition, Formation, Counting and Patterns
Reading Readiness - Letter Recognition, Phonological Awareness, Sight Words and Comprehension Skills
Expression through Art and Music
Gross and Fine Motor Skills
Social and Emotional Skills
The Pre-Kindergarten schedule corresponds with the K-8 school schedule. School doors open at 7:20 a.m., school begins at 7:50 a.m., lunch is served at 11:30 a.m. and students are dismissed at 3:00 p.m. Before- & After Care is available for all students who need to be dropped off early or picked up late.
Our Pre-Kindergarten program meets 3 days per week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday). It is a mixture of 3- and 4-year-old children.
To enroll in the upcoming school year, students must be fully potty trained and turn 3 or 4 before August 1st. Pre-Kindergarten registration opens yearly to parish members and current preschoolers in January and to the public in February. There is a non-refundable $100 fee due at registration to hold your place and a daily fee of $20 billed weekly or monthly (parent's choice) throughout the school year. Parents are not billed over summer break or for any days school is not in session (ex: Labor Day, Thanksgiving Break, snow days, etc.). Complete information is available in the Pre-Kindergarten Handbook.
We love visitors! For more information about our Pre-Kindergarten or to set up a free visit day for your child, call the school office at 573-468-4423.
