Preschool Program


Seton School provides a Catholic Preschool Program for 3 year old children. The 3 Year Old Preschool Program is a structured preschool program that offers a loving Christian atmosphere that meets the physical, emotional, social and intellectual needs of the students. The program provides a positive approach to learning through play as well as hands on experience.  It is a place where students can expand their capabilities, enjoy learning, and have fun with their peers.

The Preschool Program will........

  •     Provide a gentle, loving atmosphere where our first priority is the children's all around development and welfare.
  •     Assist the children in developing caring, curious, responsible, and independent attitudes and behaviors.
  •     Provide a warm, nurturing environment that develops the children's confidence in their ability to learn.
  •     Expose the children to the concept of God, as loving Father, and Jesus, as our friend.
  •     Look forward to interacting with parents whose comments and suggestions are always welcome.
