Promoting Safety,
Fitness And 
A Healthy Lifestyle


St. Mark's Preschool is full of activities and opportunities that engage the whole child in creative, developmentally appropriate learning. Our primary goal is to prepare your children for success by cultivating their self-confidence and self-esteem, and a life-long love of learning. We carefully plan every day, focusing on preparing your child to be Kindergarten ready by meeting benchmarks set by the MS State Department of Health.

As a Christian based school, we celebrate God's creation every day through outdoor play, music, art and Bible stories.

We care for each other and respect our teachers and families.

We learn about our neighbors here in our community and across the world by experiencing various cultures and traditions.

We honor and welcome diversity and inclusiveness.

We learn to communicate with friends who are deaf, learning basic American Sign Language.

Safety is important to us! We practice and learn how to play safe inside and outside.

We learn about healthy habits of proper rest, physical play and healthy nutrition choices.

We experience various methods of mindful meditation,

relaxation and exercise.

Partnering with our community friends, we learn about those people who take care of keeping us safe in our homes, schools

and churches.


Giving Children a Happy Place
To Grown and Learn

Children's work is play. We encourage our children to experiment and explore in an environment free from failure. When engaged in creative thinking activities, it is important that there is no right or wrong answer, and that all answers are acceptable. In this type of environment, children develop the ability to see problems and challenges from new perspectives, think differently about solutions and alternative approaches, and attempt solutions without judgement or criticism.
