San Raphael Preschool
Saint Raphael Preschool opened in the fall of 2004 on the campus of Saint Raphael School and serves 38 children from age 3 until they enter kindergarten. Children must be 3 years old by September 1st and should be fully toilet trained to enroll in our Preschool. Our school is in session for 180 days from August to June.
The Angels class focuses on the transition to a group experience for 3-year old children, with special attention to their social and emotional development and adjustment. We offer the children a variety of experiences in art, media, play, dramatic play, movement, stories, large and small motor development and interation with adults and their peers. Enrollment is for 16 Angels.
The Saints class continues what has begun in the Angels class and focuses on offering 4-year old children opportunities to develop their readiness for kindergarten. We sing, play, draw, and explore letter sounds and various themes throughout the year as the children grow in many skills that will support their success in kindergarten. Enrollment is for 22 Saints.
All staff are certified by the State of California Commission on Teacher Credentialing for the position they are assigned. Currently, one staff member serves on the Marin First Five Commission and one serves on the Marin Child Care Commission. Our staff ratio is 1:8.
We provide a safe, stable and stimulating environment of love, friendship and security for children without regard to race, religion or ethnic origins.
