Welcome to Mater Dei Catholic Preschool Program! The purpose of our program is to provide a positive early educational experience for your child. The program offers each child activities which address his/her total needs: physical, emotional intellectual, and spiritual. Our commitment is to bring Jesus to the hearts of the children entrusted to our care. We will strive to provide a loving and safe environment that encourages socialization, creativity, experimentation and 21st century learning. A "hands on" approach to learning is stressed


Welcome to Imagination Playhouse! The Imagination Playhouse is a two day a week program for our youngest Mate Dei students. This program will run on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9:00am-11:30am. It is designed for 2 1/2 - 3 year old children and will incorporate a hands on and multi-sensory approach to learning within a nurturing enviornment. Stories, music, art and play will support and enhance our themes. Children will also learn and practice their social skills and problem solving. This will be a great first step into your child's journey of learning!

-Please remember to check your information packet for the list of supplies to hand in for the start of our school year!

  • Please be sure to check the PreK supply list by clicking here. We are asking you to please send your child to school with a regular size backpack. Many of the items that will be sent home with your child each week can not fit into a small bookbag. For shelter in place bags, please consider small bottles of water, instead of regular size since it will be difficult to fit them into a gallon bag. Also, if your child's "activity book" will not fit in the bag, you are free to label the book and keep it separate.
  • Thank you all very much for your patience with our car line during the start of school! We know it can be a long wait, but we promise that once we get in to the routine, it will move much more quickly. Please be sure that your car sign is visible in the passenger side window, or the passenger side of the front window. We cannot see the signs when they are laying on the dashboard. We truly appreciate your patience and cooperation, and we look forward to a great year with your wonderful children!
