Welcome to the Mater Dei 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 in 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.

Important Dates:

3/18: eLearning begins!




Thank you very much for taking the time to continue the eLearning process with your child. I enjoyed seeing the all the wonderful pictures you shared with me last week through email and Marco Polo. I will be posting full lesson plans this week on MWF and enrichment activities on TTh. I think the children will enjoy all of the activities so please check them out! Don't forget to also use the resource and printable tab on my website for added fun!  I really miss seeing the children, teaching the lessons, and interacting with them in person! They always put a smile on my face. I sent out the information for everyone to join a commumication app called Marco Polo and I just want to thank you for taking the time to sign in and for using this tool.  It has been a fun way for the children to see one another and share their activities with the whole class. If you haven't joined, I encourage you to do so... if you need the information resent, just let me know. Please continue to "check-in" each day by email or Marco Polo and please let the children know I miss them very much. I will continue to keep your families in my prayers!  If you need to contact me, I will be holding “office hours” every MWF  from 10:00-11:00am.  Please stay safe and healthy and continue to pray for all families affected by the virus. I miss you and can’t wait until we’re back to our amazing school!

Please continue to encourage your child to do a "good deed" at home each day as we are trying to fill our bean jar to prepare our hearts for Easter. We are hoping our jar is full at the end of Lent to earn a special surprise! We are looking forward to a prayerful Lenten season!

We are excited to announce Mater Dei's Summer Camp program: Adventure Awaits! Each week campers will explore a different country to learn about their saints, customs, culture, and language. This five week camp will be filled with fun STEAM activities for all ages to enjoy! Please click here for all of the information!

My name is Margie Bauder. I am so happy to be starting my fourth year teaching preschool at Mater Dei Catholic School. I am proud to say that I have a long history with Saint Stanislaus/Mater Dei Catholic school. I, along with my six children, are all SS/MD alumni! I continued my education at Montgomery County Community College and Gwynedd Mercy College earning my degree in Early Childhood Education. My goal as an Early Childhood educator is to develop a love of learning and a positive preschool experience for every child in my care and I am looking forward to an awesome year!
