Welcome! St. Teresa Preschool offers an outstanding maximum 8 to 1 student to teacher ratio with qualified teachers. Students thrive in our vibrant Catholic environment! We encourage social and academic development through play, creative opportunities, and a wide variety of learning experiences. Our Pre-K students are well-prepared to enter kindergarten the following year!

School Days. Our daily routine includes open play, group time, learning centers, snack, outdoor play, story time, and music. We often schedule special activities to match our weekly themes. Community members, such as librarians, firefighters, sheriff deputies, dental professions, recyclers, and ice cream makers, are invited to visit and enrich our curriculum. Pre-K students usually attend the Friday morning Mass. The school year runs from the beginning of September through Memorial Day.

Parent Involvement. We strive to work together with parents for the benefit of the students, and we appreciate parent feedback and input. Many parents come in and join the class for parties, special events, and weekly Mass. We are grateful for the wonderful parents at St. Teresa Preschool!

Pre-K. The Pre-K class is for children who are turning 4-years-old before August 1 and preparing to enter kindergarten the following year. Pre-K meets for an extended 3 ½ hour class on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 8:30-Noon. Tuition is $130/month.

3-4’s. The 3-4’s class is held on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, 8:30-11:30. Students should be at least 3-years-old before August 1 and potty trained by the start of school. Tuition is $100/month.

When to Register. “Open Enrollment” begins March 1, 2016. “Priority Enrollment” for registered St. Teresa parish families and returning students runs through February. Enrollment is limited to 15 students in each class. We anticipate the Pre-K class reaching capacity quickly.

How to Register. Enrollment forms are available at church, at the parish office, and on the preschool tabs of this St. Teresa web site. Registrations must be taken to the church office along with a non-refundable $50 enrollment fee and the first month’s tuition payment. Your commitment in registering along with paying the fee and tuition upfront helps us secure accurate enrollment numbers. The $50 fee and nine months of tuition are the only mandatory costs throughout the school year.

Church Office Hours. The church office is found in the blue-grey building directly behind the church. Please note St. Teresa’s office hours: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 9:00am-2:00pm and Tuesday and Thursday 1:00-5:00pm.
