Welcome from the Preschool Director

EllenWelcome 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 a 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 to complete a Parish School Prospective Family Intention Form and I truly look forward to sharing these early learning years with your family.
