2020-2021 Little Saints Preschool Summary

UPDATE 9/1/2020

The Lil Saints is currently in the process of trying to collaborate on creating a virtual learning program for the Lil Saints Preschool program. However, we are in the process of preparing students to work with the children, so we are looking at approximately one month before we are actually are up and running. Please be patient with us, as this is a new learning environment, and we have never before prepared a virtual classroom.

If you are interested in this program, when it is available, please complete the emergency card section of this website. We will take up to twenty 3.5-5 year old children. First priority is given to last year's preschool children who are returners, second is to staff children, third is to children four years and older, and lastly the children ages 3.5 and above. We are limiting our enrollment to twenty in case we have the option to open up on campus this school year.
