We welcome

all families seeking a faith-filled learning community for their children.

the whole child by integrating spiritual and moral development with high academic standards.

St. Angela’s Preschool is dedicated to the development and education of the “whole” preschool child. Our loving and nurturing co-educational Catholic environment allows students to thrive at an individual pace. The curriculum contains teacher-directed and self-initiated opportunities for students to build & practice pre-k readiness skills. Teachers work in teams to design and implement lessons and activities that meet the needs of the whole class as well as the unique needs of each student.
