St. George Pre-kindergarten Mission Statement
St. George Prekindergarten is a faith-filled environment that offers developmentally age-appropriate materials and activities. Through Christ-like example, teachers, staff, and administration are a source of encouragement that enhances the spiritual, physical, social, intellectual and emotional development of every child. Our mission is fulfilled through the efforts of our parents, who are their child's first teachers.

Planned activities, organization of the environment, material selection, and arrangement of the daily schedule are all designed to accomplish the goals of the prekindergarten curriculum and give children a successful start in school.
