Welcome from the Preschool Director

Welcome to ICD Parish Preschool where we play, pray and learn together each and every day! ICD Parish Preschool provides children with a Christ centered education with the focus on the growth and development of the whole child. We are a community of one spirit in Jesus Christ. We believe each child is a gift from God!

We believe that the early childhood program must be holistic in nature addressing the child’s intellectual, social/emotional, physical, creative and spiritual growth. We believe that play is a younger child’s work. Through play based activities children learn formally and informally many skills that will form foundations for later learning experiences. Active, fun, play based exploration is an important learning process.

We believe teachers, staff and families must work together to form a strong partnership that best nurtures and cares for each child’s needs. Parents and teachers work together to help each child succeed to his/her personal best. I encourage you contact me with any questions you may have about our program and I truly look forward to sharing these early learning years with your family.
