THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF THE FUTURE!

Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”

 

Mission

To provide a safe environment and foundation for every child to be successful in all aspects of life, through age appropriate activities that promote academics and Christian beliefs, while receiving the love of Jesus Christ.

 

Philosophy of Christian Education

The purpose of Saint Stephen Preschool is to assist parents in training children to know and love Jesus Christ.  Saint Stephen Preschool exists because of the role God has called the Church to carry out in Christian Education.

One of the primary goals of Christian Education is character training.  To train means to discipline, to exercise, to teach and to form by practice.
