Thank you for your interest in St. Thomas Preschool! The goal of our program is to educate the whole child - academically, physically, socially, and spiritually. We utilize the HighScope Curriculum, Minds in Motion, and Catechesis of the Good Shepherd to achieve this goal.
The St. Thomas Preschool Program offers a variety of schedule options to meet the academic and social needs of each of our students, beginning at age 3. Please use the navigation links to learn more about our program. We invite you to schedule a tour of St. Thomas and the Preschool learning spaces by calling the school office at 574-264-4855. Come grow with us!
Morning Drop Off:
Students needing before school care can be dropped off between 7:00-7:30 in front of the school (Door A). Students arriving after 7:30 will be dropped off in the back of the school by the playground. Please enter this lot from Main Street and Exit on Romain St. Mrs. Fuller will meet your child at Door D. If you arrive after 8:05, you will need to park in front of the school and bring them in to the office.
Morning Pick Up:
Pick up for half day preschool students is at 11:05. Please enter the lot between the church and the school from Romain Street and park along side the sidewalk. Pull forward as far as you can along the curb. We will bring your child to your car. Please stay in the line until the car in front of you pulls out of the lot on to Main Street.
Afternoon Pick Up:
School is dismissed at 3:15. Pick up for full day preschool students (and their siblings) will happen in the back lot by the playground. Please enter this lot from Main Street and exit on to Romain Street. Two lines will form near the garage doors. Please pull as far forward as you can in either line. We will bring your child to you, so you do not need to get out of your car. Please stay in line until the car in front of you pulls out of the lot.
Please let me know via email if your child will need to attend After Care. After Care is available until 6:00 pm for an additional charge.
Two Hour Delays:
In the case of a two hour delay, there is no morning preschool. Full day students may be dropped off two hours later than usual (10:05 start time).
