St. Paul’s Episcopal Preschool 2020-2021
A Christian School in the Episcopal Tradition
In the 2020-2021 school year, St. Paul’s will begin an exciting chapter in its childhood education and formation ministries with the launch of the St. Paul’s Episcopal Preschool. The St. Paul’s Episcopal Preschool will serve children 18 months to 5 years old and build on the tradition of love and care of programs currently offered at St. Paul’s, while continuing to provide a focus on early childhood education and development.
Our Mission Statement
To provide a nurturing and safe environment for children 18 months-5 years old that encourages curiosity, exploration, compassion, and a love of learning through play; to ensure each child is known, loved, and belongs as they develop to their fullest potential—spiritually, intellectually, and socially; to foster a love of God, a sense of self-worth, and a respect for others.
Our Governing Principles of Education
• Built on the foundation of Christian love
• Instills character and integrity
• Honors individuality
• Committed to strong communication and relationships among parents, community, school and parish
