The Sacred Heart Preschool program focuses on the whole child, rooted in purposeful play, social emotional learning, and a strong academic foundation to create a nurturing environment for growth.

Starting with the 2024-25 school year, our newly renovated preschool space is nestled within the heart of our campus. With a purpose-built outdoor classroom, spacious and custom designed indoor classrooms, flexible drop-off, and extended care.

Pre-Kindergarten for 3-year-old children offers a warm and nurturing first-school experience designed for 3-year-old children. We inspire young minds to explore, create, and learn through engaging play, with a special emphasis on fostering social-emotional development and laying the groundwork for academic success.

Junior Kindergarten for 4-year-old children continues the joyful environment of pre-kindergarten. This cognitively rich experience builds upon children’s growing curiosity and confidence, empowers them with fundamental skills, and creates a smooth transition to senior kindergarten. 

Preschool is the first step in a seamless Sacred Heart education that will take your child through eighth grade. No further admissions process is required for senior kindergarten.


Young people are our priority, they carry the seeds of the future. - Madeleine Sophie Barat, foundress of the Society of the Sacred Heart

The Preschool Curriculum Philosophy

Sacred Heart Preschool believes education focuses on the whole child, with an emphasis on helping children build a foundation to become lifelong respectful learners and leaders by living the Sacred Heart Goals and Criteria.

As we seek to educate the whole child, our curriculum philosophy focuses on 3 core areas:

  • Purposeful Play
  • Social Emotional Learning
  • Academic Foundation

Best-in-class teaching practices and compassionate educators bring this philosophy to life by focusing on the students' unique needs and strengths, through a 7:1 student to teacher ratio.
