Preschool and Prekindergarten Program Opportunities

Early childhood education is essential.

Our six Catholic schools are conveniently located across southeast Omaha and Bellevue. Children in our early childhood programs perform higher than other students on standardized testing beginning in kindergarten. Beyond the academics, our preschool and preK teachers and staff will welcome and truly get to know and care for your child, helping them grow socially, emotionally, and in their faith.

Compared to daycare or childcare centers in the area, our preschool program average tuition rate is an affordable alternative.

All Consortium schools have preschool and PreK options. Two of our schools, Holy Cross and St. Thomas More, have a transitional kindergarten program to ensure kindergarten readiness. Transition kindergarten (TK) is for students who meet age requirements for kindergarten but who could benefit from one more year to develop the fundamental academic and social skills for future success in schools.

Young learners in our early childhood programs benefit from caring teachers, safe environments and a values-based education. A positive early childhood education like our schools provide is important in shaping a child's positive attitude and success for years to come.

 

"I love working with kids because they are the best teachers in life. Thank you for teaching me how to see this world through your eyes." - Mrs. Campos, Dual Language Academy
