Welcome to the Nativity Preschool Program
We are excited to partner with you for our 2022-2023 school year! We have outlined some helpful information for you as we anticipate the start of your child’s preschool year.
Our preschool is staffed with licensed, dedicated teachers to plan meaningful experiences to meet the needs and development of young learners. Our teachers come with rich backgrounds and have support staff who love working with children in a Christ-centered environment.

The Catholic faith is integrated into our preschool program through daily prayer, a religious curriculum and visits from the Sisters and from Father. The Nativity of Mary preschool offers weekly music and library visits. We also utilize the Makerspace, Large Motor Room and Gym when available.
Bussing options are available for Bloomington residents whose preschooler is 4 or 5 years old and confirmed with the school office. Staff will meet students who are bussed at door 10 and walk them to and from the classroom. Staff will meet students who are being dropped off/picked up at the main school office door 14 between 9:15-9:30 a.m. and walk them to and from the classroom.
