We appreciate your interest in the St. Joseph Pre-Kindergarten program. Our Early Education program serves 3 & 4 year olds. It will provide your child a variety of developmental activities that are designed to foster spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional, and social growth in your child. We offer an ideal place for your child to transition from home or day care to the structure of a formal school setting.
Set in semi-rural St. Charles County, our school still retains its country charm yet its modern facility is geared towards the future. St. Joseph School offers a professional, faith filled, Catholic educational environment for your children to learn and grow. Our smaller size helps to ensure that your child will be educated in a caring community filled with people who know and understand them well.
