EARLY CHILDHOOD

What Do You Look For When Seeking a Truly Extraordinary Early Childhood Program for Your Son or Daughter?

 “Early Childhood at St. Michael’s is so much more than what I had expected, or even hoped, for my son. The program is uniquely designed to meet each child as they develop, and it is infused with amazing arts, science, and languages. I’m blown away…”  -Mother of a Preschool Boy.

“The tooth fairy really leaves a quarter under your pillow…”

“In this world, I can do anything I set my mind to do, and be anyone I decide I want to be…”

 These are the voices of our youngest students; our early childhood boys and girls. And we LOVE to hear those voices.

Your son or daughter has amazing natural curiosity. They want to discover, build, run, and share. They want to know “why things are the way they are?” At SMCDS, we harness that energy amidst a daily schedule of discovering, playing, sharing, and all the while, learning.

Through a seamlessly constant series of intentional instruction, modeling, exploration, and inquiry, SMCDS faculty immerse your child in a world where they develop their I.Q. as much as they develop their E.Q. With a gentle hand, SMCDS teachers guide and captivate, inspire, and nurture your child to begin on the path of discovering who they are and who they will be.
