Charlie, age 5


“You can try things. If
you like it and get it right, you might want to keep doing it.”

The mission of St. John’s Episcopal Preschool is to celebrate children’s depth of wonder and joy in the world, and to engage with them and their families in their explorations. In a rich environment, children collaborate with experienced teachers to extend their thinking and to develop their unique abilities. As a ministry of St. John’s Episcopal Church, we seek to form a bridge to the wider community, reflect its diversity, and support the full potential of childhood.
