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.

  • If you are sending in Valentines for our party on the 13th, please only fill out the "from" section. We will distribute them to each child. We have 20 children in our class. Thank you!
  • We are gearing up for the Polar Plunge! The children are very excited that I will be jumping in the freezing ocean. We are raising money for the Mater Dei Tuition Assistance Fund. If anyone is interested in sponsoring me, or any other "plungers", please feel free to send any donations in a marked envelope in your child's folder. We also have a "change jar" in our classroom! If you would like to send in any loose change (in a marked baggie or envelope) your child will be able to add it to our jar. If we raise enough money, all of Preschool will have another pajama day! (Date TBA)
  • Please click on the "Montly Newsletter" tab as it has been updated for the month of February!
  • We have a peanut and tree nut allergy in our classroom, therefore, we will remain nut free!!

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!
