The ages between birth and five years of age are the foundation, supporting successful lives. During these years, children develop the language, thinking, physical, emotional, and social skills that they will need for the rest of their lives.

The St. Gertrude's Preschool program is designed to provide a happy, secure place where each child will have a variety of experiences to develop these skills while nurturing a positive self-concept.
