ST. BERNADETTE EARLY CHILDHOOD CONNECTIONS


St. Bernadette Early Childhood Connections strives to meet the needs of our children of our diverse community. We welcome all children. Our positive Christian learning environment recognizes the uniqueness of each child as we work with parents to prepare their child for success.

St. Bernadette Early Childhood Connections offers classes with no discrimination with regard to race, color or creed. It is our goal at St. Bernadette to provide an environment where each child feels loved not because of what they can do or what they look like but because of whom they are - a creation in the image of God.


3 year olds and 4 year olds - Pre K

We respect and support parents in the education of their young children by:

  1. providing varied experiences under the leadership of experienced teachers encouraging creative thought and creative play
  2. keeping in mind the importance of developing and reinforcing positive self esteem
  3. striving to provide a Christian environment of love and understanding for all students

We offer a safe and enjoyable setting filled with learning opportunities during a child's important growing years.
