Preschool - Saint Leo The Great Catholic Church/School


Saint Leo the Great School offers an early introduction to faith, socialization, fun and age-appropriate education through our Pre-Kindergarten program. The Pre-K program is designed to prepare your child for Kindergarten in a loving and caring Catholic environment. Pre-K families will be able to choose from either 5 half days per week or 5 full days per week for 4 year olds. The half day program will be from 8:25 am (with drop off beginning at 8 am) to 11:20 am and the full day program will be from 8:25 am (with drop off beginning at 8am) to 3:00 pm to coincide with our K through 8th grade school day. The program will follow a developmentally appropriate curriculum designed by the Diocese of Harrisburg that fosters the child’s growth in all areas: spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional and physical. Students entering our Pre-K program must be 4 years old as of September 1st of the 2023-2024 academic year. Any child seeking admission to Pre-K must also be completely toilet trained and busing is not provided for Pre-K.
