Faithful Beginnings Preschool at St. Maximilian Kolbe Catholic School is a high quality, faith-based preschool which offers both full and half-day options. Children at this age learn at such a rapid rate, thus our teaching staff support and challenge each child to grow to their full potential.  Our high quality, Kindergarten-readiness curriculum supports math, language, social, physical, and emotional development. Classroom activities include a focus on God and God's wonderful world, and supports children as individuals who learn at their own pace. Our focus is inclusive of all Christian faiths at this young age, as we introduce the basics in faith formation.  Students develop their social and academic skills in a fun, hands-on environment. Special learning oppotunities for our 4/5-year olds include: Music sessions, gym, library, and outdoor playground.  A monthly “Big Buddies” activity with St. Max 4th - 6th graders is a highlight for the students.

Our goal is for every child to enter Kindergarten confident and ready to successfully conquer the new journey ahead!
