Since 1969, St. Raphael has welcomed little people taking their first steps into school. We are proud of our early-childhood program, where we extend the various components of developing children. In our preschool, we tap into the cognitive skills of our 3-, 4-, and 5-year-olds, using a language-rich approach seasoned with just the right exposure to math, science, and the arts. Our young learners are introduced to the nutritional plate and exercise, as well as scientific theory. The spiritual world is opened to them as we celebrate holy days, learn prayers, and build the Body of Christ here at SRNS. Our children sing, dance, draw, and create their way through the school year. Many of them are doing all of this in Spanish, too! Looking for a chance to meet some friends, set up play dates, or just share ideas? St. Raphael Nursery School is a special place for parents as well. The halls of SRNS have fostered friendships spanning decades and generations. Welcome to our world! It is bright and filled with hope as we work with the children of today to foster the leaders of tomorrow.
