St. George’s Preschool

St. George’s Episcopal Preschool affirms that every child is born with strengths and weaknesses, that challenges are also opportunities, and that learning should be infectious and joyful.  We offer a safe, developmentally appropriate learning environment that serves a small yet diverse group of preschoolers from our parish family, the community, and under-served families living in our vicinity.  Using Montessori teaching principals and environment, best educational practices, and our spiritual traditions, we offer education of the whole child.  As each child is a unique individual with his or her own learning style and abilities, we focus on social, spiritual, moral, intellectual, emotional, and physical growth.

It is our goal to pique curiosity, nurture imagination, find the joy in learning, and promote independence and confidence. We encourage our students in the delights of literature, art, and music, while building a caring community of learners.  To these ends, we strive to have parents, teachers, and other community members actively involved in our students’ hands-on experiential learning.

Our Program

  • Offers a Montessori environment and curriculum. Students learn by working hands- on, touching, creating, and manipulating the materials in the classroom. They build concentration and form a deeper understanding of the concepts they have been taught.
  • Enriches children in spiritual traditions, giving them opportunity to receive and enjoy the most essential elements of wonder and trust.
  • Creates together a place of preparation for life and for involvement in the larger community.
