The Cradle Preschool

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

Thank you for your interest in the St. Gabriel Cradle Preschool. The Cradle is a developmental playschool 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.

The Cradle Staff is coordinated by Kate Stephens, Director, who has experience and an educational background in early childhood education and special education. The Cradle teachers all have experience in working with and teaching young children. The staff plans lessons and activities that allow 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 focus and goal is to create an early childhood program based on the developmental milestones in a young child’s life, using appropriate lessons and activities to foster his or her developmental growth.

Our Curriculum is designed to encourage growth and learning across several developmental skill areas with a school readiness component for 4 and 5 year-olds.The Catholic Church has always been a strong advocate for providing children with quality education and this program continues that tradition.
