Early Childhood Programs

3K and 4K Early Childhood Programs

This is an exciting time in your child’s life which we at St. Mary Catholic School are honored to share with you. This is also a very sensitive time. During these early years, children shape their basic values while learning about themselves and others. Our goal at St. Mary Catholic School is to provide a cooperative journey shared by the children, parents and teachers. Children will learn at their own rate while their talents and strengths are celebrated. We are prepared to do our part in nurturing your child through a high quality education.

We also offer the flexibility to repeat our program based on late birthdays or other needs. Children need to be 3 years old before September 1 to enroll in our 3K program and 4 years old before September 1 to enroll in our 4K program, and be bathroom trained.

The 3K and 4K programs at St. Mary Catholic School provide age-appropriate curriculums which nurture each child’s intellectual, emotional, physical, social, moral and spiritual needs. We provide a Christian-centered learning environment that promotes faith, family values and academic excellence.

God's Little Explorers

We have designed an exciting 2 and 3 year old program at St. Mary Catholic School. This is the perfect opportunity for you and your child to experience the teachers, school environment, and the wonderful things happening at St. Mary Catholic School in Hilbert which provides a faith-based education to children in 3K-Grade 6.

This first glimpse of school will be both educational, engaging, and loads of fun! Parents/Guardians are welcome to join their children as we explore, create, and celebrate.

Hands-On Learning Environment

Hands-on learning experiences are at the center of our program, and theme-based units will help children expand their knowledge base. Socialization skills, science exploration and art enrichment (music, theatre and art) will enhance the preschool program experience for each child. We will promote each child’s self-help skills and manners as children learn to interact with peers and adults in a positive and respectful way. All activities are designed to promote Kindergarten readiness.

At St. Mary Catholic School, we pride ourselves in the small class size knowing that each child receives the much-needed attention he/she needs and deserves to grow and learn. Students really do thrive in our small, private school setting. St. Mary Catholic School remains committed, ensuring that each child receives the sincere interest, respect and assistance from his/her educator every day, making each child’s learning experience the very best available.

Family Involvement and Education

Parental involvement is very important in the education of your child. After all, you are your child’s most important teacher and will continue in that role for years to come. We value parental participation and realize that parents are an integral part of the success of our school. Parents are welcome to visit the school and volunteer in the classrooms and for special events. We truly look forward to partnering with you!
