Full Day 4-Year Old PreKindergarten

Our St. Mary of Gostyn PreKindergarten Program offers a hands-on early childhood curriculum designed to foster the development of the child as a whole. Our comprehensive programs allow each child to develop cognitive, physical, spiritual and social skills in both small and large group activities. Children learn through a play-based curriculum and through developmentally appropriate activities in areas of religion, mathematics, social studies, science, phonemic awareness, and creative arts, which encourages curiosity, cooperation and empathy.
