Our Preschool Program

St. Maria Goretti Preschool offers a developmental program to children ages two through Pre-K. The goal of our program is to bring little ones to a personal love of Jesus through the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, our religious education program. This is accomplished in a nurturing atmosphere that allows each child the joy of discovering his or her own unique God-given talents and abilities. Our focus is on the whole child, their spiritual, emotional, physical, social and cognitive development. Our curriculum utilizes hands-on materials to present language, math, science, art and religion in an atmosphere of love and respect for each individual.

Our Kindergarten Program

The St. Maria Goretti Kindergarten program is a full day - 8:30 am to 2:30 pm, Mon. - Thurs. and 7:50 am to 1:30 pm Friday. The curriculum is integrated and thematic. Twelve themes will be presented throughout the year. Each theme will integrate reading, math, social studies, science, music, art, computer and physical education and is designed to exceed Arizona State Standards with a rigorous & challenging academic program. The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd will be used for their religious formation.
