Mission / Philosophy

St. Joan of Arc Catholic Preschool is dedicated to providing a Christ-centered foundation for life-long learners in a safe, healthy, and nurturing environment.


St. Joan of Arc Preschool is based on the philosophy that positive early learning experiences translate into future school and personal success. School success is heavily dependent on the child’s self-esteem and attitude toward the learning process.

Young children learn best by doing. Young learners require active thinking and experimenting to understand how things work and to learn firsthand about the world in which they live. Play provides this foundation for learning. Play is the work of the young child.

St. Joan of Arc Preschool believes that the acquisition of Catholic Christian values leads to a more spiritually balanced human being. It is these values that will guide a child throughout his/her whole life. This Preschool strives to not only instill a lifetime love of learning, but a love of the Lord as well.
