St. Mary School


Purpose and Philosophy

We believe that you are your child’s first and most significant teachers. We encourage each of you to become an active participant in your child’s time here with us. We will strive to maintain open communication with you daily, weekly, and monthly through a variety of means. Please know that you are always welcome here!


Our philosophy is to facilitate children’s development in their faith, communication, social-emotional, play skills, cognition, motor skills, self-help skills and build a positive self-concept. This “whole child” approach will take place in active, safe and nurturing environments. We believe that children construct their own understanding of the world through active involvement with materials, people and concepts. The staff’s role is to facilitate their understanding of their world by creating opportunities for them that are developmentally and age-appropriate through the use of materials, planned spaces, play opportunities, and a consistent daily routine based on developmentally appropriate practices.
