Preschool Program

Our mission at St. Mary's Community Preschool is to teach our students that working hard, opening your heart to others, and with God's love, you can achieve great things in life. We would like to remind everyone that early registration is open for the 2019 - 2020 school year. Please contact us at 845-351-2389 to secure a spot for your child in one of our programs.


St. Mary's Community Preschool Program is where the excitement for learning begins. Our Early Childhood program offers time and space for young children to be children. We provide a place where they are free to play, explore, and imagine. It is designed to lead them from wonder to discovery and from investigation to affirmation.

It is our primary goal to provide the opportunity for all children to associate learning with pleasure and to develop a positive sense of self.  We are committed to collaborating with parents in sharing religious beliefs and values with the children.

Our program is offered to children from the ages of two years old to four years old as December 1st. SMCP offers the following programs:

  • Two's (age 2) T/TH 9:00am - 11:45am

  • Preschool (age 3) M/W/F 9:00am - 11:45am

  • PreK (age 4) M-F 9:00am - 11:45am
