St. John the Evangelist's preschool program, offered for three and four-year-olds, provides our youngest children with the opportunity to grow in a positive Christian atmosphere. The program is designed to meet the needs and interests of the young child based on the following goals:

  • Enable children to be aware of God's love for them.

  • Provide a happy and caring environment that nurtures growth and respect for self and others.

  • Create opportunities for each child to act and interact in a positive and relaxing atmosphere.

  • Teach with kindness, encouragement and direction.

  • Help each child develop fine and gross motor skills.

  • Promote reading, writing and math readiness skills.


​We offer an excellent early childhood curriculum utilizing D.I.G. (Develop, Inspire, Grow) Curriculum which teaches oral language, active literacy, robust math, science & social studies and social emotional skills. Pre-4 religion is based on Stories of God's Love curriculum while Pre-3 religion is based on God Made Me curriculum.

Deciding on a preschool to begin your child's education is a big decision. We welcome new families to schedule a tour of the preschool to see our program, speak with the teachers and observe a typical day for students. Angie Buchanan, SJE's Director of Admission, can schedule a tour during school hours.
