Preschool Program Information

Both Bloomsdale Elementary and Ste. Genevieve Elementary launched a preschool classroom in 2015, with a mission of promoting high-quality early care and education programs for our children. Our preschool classrooms serve up to 20 students with a certified Early Childhood Preschool Lead Teacher and a Preschool Teacher Assistant.

Both preschool classrooms offer a full-day program that operates Monday through Friday. Breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack while in attendance are included in the fee; however, participation in Dragons Den, the schools’ After Care program, is not included in the fee but is available at an additional cost.
