Welcome to St. Mark Catholic Preschool 

We look forward to helping your children as they embark on their lifelong journey to know, love and serve God through the Catholic Church.  Here at St. Mark Preschool, we value each child for their own unique God-given gifts and view each child as a capable, creative, independent thinker.  We value the importance of play and encourage the children to learn through exploration and developmentally appropriate activities.  We understand that the quality of a child’s early educational experience is very important in forming confident students and loving members of the community.  For this reason, our preschool program fosters joy of learning in a nurturing Catholic environment. 

We are excited to announce that we will be using the Letterland curriculum to teach phonics beginning in the 2018-2019 school year.  All 3, 4 and 5-year-old students will have fun learning letters and sounds with this new addition to our learning environment.  We will also present weekly thematic units in which the students will engage in science, math, art, dramatic play and music that correlate to the theme of the week.  The children will learn about the lives of the saints, bible stories, and prayers while visiting the adoration chapel, church and the Mary Garden.  Children will participate in large motor activities on the playground, in music class and in the gym with our new indoor gym toys.  Our curriculum focuses on educating the whole child- mind, body and spirit.   We hope your child will join us as they begin their lifelong journey in education and in the Catholic Faith.

Preschool Summer Camp

This summer, St. Mark Preschool will hold 2 four-day camps and 6 Wednesdays of camp for a day, or Parents' Morning Out. 

For our four-day camps, we have a secular book and a related parable as our theme each day.  The children will move through 7 fun stations- music, dramatic play, outside time, STEAM, sensory/math, religion and craft- as they learn and play.

Our Wednesday camps will be theme-based and lots of fun.  We will have a religion station each day where the children will hear a bible story and pray. 

Preschool Summer Camp will be June 16-19 and July 28-31.  Camp is Tuesday through Friday, from 9 am to 1 pm.  

Parents' Morning Out will be on Wednesdays, June 10, June 24, July 8, July 15, August 5, and August 12.

The cost for each week of four-day camp is $110, and includes one camp t-shirt. A $50 deposit for each week is due with registration. The remaining $60 will be due on the first day of camp.

Parents' Morning Out will be $30 per day, with a $10 per day deposit required, due with registration.
