At Pope John Preschool & Daycare we want your child to experience stimulating, fun, and developmentally appropriate activities as they begin their journey to formal education. It is our hope that children learn to manage their feelings through work and play with others. The teaching techniques are as varied and unique as the children’s. We provide an atmosphere where Christian ideals of love and respect are demonstrated. We celebrate the birth and life of Jesus teaching Christian values and respect. Grace is said before snacks and meals.
Students presently enrolled, siblings and members of Prince of Peace Catholic Church begin pre-registration in January, during Catholic Schools Week. Pre-registration is based on a first come first serve basis. Parents are required to fill out a registration for each student attending the Pope John Preschool Program for the 2023-2024 school year. A registration fee of $75 is required to enroll and is non-refundable. You do not have to pay registration for preschool, only, if you have another student attending K-12 at Prince of Peace Catholic Schools. A waiting list will be started if the classes are filled; Parents will be notified when a position becomes available. Children of all races and religions are welcome.

We feel parents choose Pope John Preschool/Daycare because they want a good foundation for formal learning. Pope John Preschool is a happy, loving school where children have positive experiences. An Orientation Meeting for parents is held prior to the beginning of school and conferences are scheduled when needed or by request. Monthly calendars and weekly newsletters are sent home to provide ongoing communication. A parent handbook is provided at the beginning of each year. We are included in the elementary school functions throughout the year. These activities are opportunities to get involved with no obligations. Your participation is welcome and encouraged and helps make our schools a success.
Payments for Preschool/Daycare can be paid in full or divided into monthly payments. Tuition is paid through F.A.C.T.S., an automatic withdrawal system set up through the school’s business office. There is a preschool multi-child discount for families with more than one child attending the Preschool. No deductions are made for the absence of a child or snow days.
Pope John Preschool does participate in the On My Way PreK program.
Pope John Preschool is proud to offer a safe and nurturing environment for early childhood education. Our teachers have years of experience teaching and working with young children. All teachers are certified in C.P.R. and First Aid.
