San Marino Congregational Preschool


by Janet Beaulieu, Preschool Director

SAN MARINO CONGREGATIONAL PRESCHOOL 65 YEARSOur school year opened to a smaller enrollment than expected.  In response to parents needing longer hours of care, the church and staff fully supported extending hours until 4:30 each day.  On just our prayers, before advertising was in place, we enrolled two children in the extended day.  Please keep us in your prayers, as we move into a new phase of service.

The children really enjoyed our family pizza day.  We had a great attendance and there was no pizza left.  Our new families had a chance to meet and share in fellowship as our returning families enjoyed their reunion.  Some of these friendships will last many years.

Our teaching staff will have a daylong training with Carly Bedard. October 19th. She will present a program on teaching in positive environments.   The Church Related Early Child Education Fellowship organization will sponsor this event in San Marino this year.

Our Halloween celebrations will have pumpkin fun and we will have a costume parade and “trunk or treat” exchange in our parking lot on October 31st. 

As we begin this harvest season, we are thankful for the opportunity to touch the minds and hearts of children.  Our harvest is one of infinite possibilities.

Preschool Philosophy
At San Marino Congregational Preschool, believe that children develop at their own pace. It is our job, as early childhood professionals, to provide a program which encourages this natural unfolding process for each child.

We provide a child centered curriculum in which a child can grow to be a well rounded individual . We focus on providing opportunitities for the child to develop intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically. We put a high value on each child's individuality and creativity.
