About St. Bernard Preschool & Pre-Kindergarten

The preschool years of your child’s life are exciting and fun-filled. Your child is learning at an incredible rate. We want to help you give your child the best early childhood experience possible.

At Saint Bernard Preschool & Pre-Kindergarten, we offer age-appropriate preschool programs focused on helping your child prepare for kindergarten. With licensed teachers leading each classroom, your child will enjoy high quality instruction as well as plenty of free play and center time learning in a fun environment.

We participate in Paths to Quality, a state facilitated voluntary child care rating system. Our program has also been accredited by AdvancED, a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of Pre-K-12 schools and school systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential. Our program is also a Paths to Quality, Level 4 program.

Check out our various program options here. 

Our friendly and dedicated teachers and staff are trained and educated in early childhood education. We have the experience and knowledge it takes to give your child a great start to his/her future. By providing a relaxed but structured environment, your child will be able to concentrate on learning. Through play and hands-on activities, your child will master academics and develop a love of learning. Your child will experience all of this while having fun.






Our mission is to offer high quality preschool programs which nurture creativity and prepare children for school.  We are committed to providing a well-rounded curriculum in a Christian environment and are dedicated to empowering children to be future leaders.
