Frequently Asked Questions
What is Sunday Pre-school?
A Sunday School Program for 3 year-olds through Kindergarten. We explore the Sunday liturgy and Catholic themes through fun, age-appropriate activities including music, prayer, movement, crafts, puppets, story time and games.
Is it Childcare?
No! It is an education program where we will reinforce your family's Catholic teaching to your youngest family member. We respect the decision of families to keep their young children with them during Mass. Sunday Pre-school is an option provided during the 10 am Mass.
Do I have to register?
Yes! This is not a drop-in program. We have to order curriculum and solicit for teachers based on numbers of children.
What are the dates?
We will begin Sunday pre-school in September. We meet every Sunday according to the year-round calendar school year with some Sundays off due to holidays.
How can I get involved?
We are always looking for parent volunteers to teach or serve as assistants in our preschool program. Volunteers typically rotate every other week. Please consider joining us in this vital ministry to our little ones. Please contact the School of Religion Office if you are interested in helping: (619) 420-9193 ext. 105.
"Whose child is this?" I asked one day seeing a little one out at play. "Mine", said the parent with a tender smile. "Mine to keep a little while, to bathe his hands and comb his hair, to tell him what he is to wear, to prepare him that he may always be good and each day do the things he should"
"Whose child is this?" I asked again as the door opened and someone came in "Mine," said the teacher with the same tender smile. "Mine, to keep just for a little while, to teach him how to be gentle and kind, to train and direct his dear little mind, to help him live by every rule and get the best he can from school"
"Whose child is this?" I ask once more just as the little one entered the door. "Ours," said the parent and the teacher as they smiled. And each took the hand of the little child. "Ours to love and train together Ours this blessed task forever. The noblest work that has ever been given, for such is the Kingdom of Heaven."
