Preschool

St. Gabriel Tiny Knights Preschool offers children ranging from 2 1/2 to 5 years old the opportunity to grow, learn and play in a safe, compassionate, cooperative environment. Explore below to learn about our preschool learning philosophy, daily schedules, application guidelines and more!

Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

Tiny Knights Preschool program is planned to meet the interests and abilities of each age level as they learn through play. The varied indoor and outdoor activities encourage interest in art, music, motor development, cognitive skills, science and social relationships. The core of the curriculum is play based, with an emphasis on the child’s social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development. This includes school readiness skills. Children learn by doing and the curriculum will afford each child the opportunity to actively explore age- appropriate materials and activities, which take into account the uniqueness of each child.

Our Mission

St. Gabriel School and Tiny Knights Preschool collaborate with our families and parish communities to provide a learning environment that calls our students to realize their God-given potential and talents.
