St. Gabriel's Cradle Preschool

 The St. Gabriel Cradle:  A Developmental Preschool Program with Heart

Thank you for your interest in our preschool.  The Cradle is a developmental preschool and pre-kindergarten program for children 2, 3, 4 and 5 years-old. The lessons and activities that we teach are centered around a creative, developmental curriculum that is based on the belief that a child’s work is play.  Our program allows children to explore their world in a faith-filled, caring and nurturing environment, preparing them with the skills necessary for successful school years after they leave the Cradle.


Our Curriculum and Goals

Our program allows children to explore their world in a faith-filled, caring and nurturing environment, preparing them with the skills necessary for successful school years after they leave the Cradle. Our program seeks to:

  • To provide a safe, nurturing child-centered environment for all children, including those who may have special needs.
  • To plan and create a program based on the developmental milestones in a young child’s life, using appropriate lessons and activities to foster his or her developmental growth.
  • To provide a program that will nurture confidence, learning, and caring.
  • To show children and their families how special they are to God and us each day.
