St. George’s Preschool

Updated 12/15/2015

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 and Reggio 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 unique, developmentally appropriate curriculum influenced by Montessori and Reggio Emilia philosophies and practices . Students learn by working hands- on, touching, creating, and manipulating the materials in the classroom, thus creating active learners who are prepared for a lifetime of educational challenges.
