Early Learning Center

St. John the Baptist Catholic Early Learning Center

St. John the Baptist Catholic early childhood program offers a high quality, faith-based early childhood education that is fun, nurturing, and cognitively stimulating to set a young child on a path for academic success. Children are engaged in cognitive, social-emotional, and spiritual development. We allow children opportunities to explore their world with creative play while developing the vital learning skills and academic concepts they need in kindergarten and beyond.  Our goal is to lead them to appreciate God’s goodness, value God’s world and the people in it, form good habits, and help those in need.

Our team of teachers is committed, energetic, and dedicated and comes with a wealth of classroom and early childhood experience as well as exceptional credentials in specialized areas.

What greater gift can you provide for your child than the gift of knowing Jesus and encouraging a love for Him?

Our Preschool and Pre-K has a uniform policy for all students and is worn as a symbol of unity and school pride.  It creates equity among students, a valuable reminder that all students are equally precious in God’s eyes.  The wearing of uniforms is to be a cooperative effort among parents, students, and staff.

Family Testimonials

We have sent five children to preschool and pre-kindergarten at St. John the Baptist Preschool.  They have all had unique personalities, different learning styles, and varying skill levels when they started, but all have thrived under the care they received from the teachers at SJB.

We love how the staff cares for each child, guiding them as they learn, providing opportunities for them to grow, and teaching them the faith as they teach ABCs.  Our children are not only well-prepared for Kindergarten, but they also learn important social skills and how-to problem-solve.

They learn through play, through art, through stories, and through instruction from the experienced teachers and staff.  We have had an overwhelmingly positive experience at SJB and highly recommend this preschool!

God bless,
