Preschool (Ages 3–4)

St. Mary Academy – Bay View’s preschool supports a young girl’s love of learning in a nurturing, creative, lively and fun environment.

Experiential and project-based learning encourages the development of cognitive and academic skills as well as social understanding and sets the tone for a lifetime of the simple joy of learning.

Our preschool provides activities with a focus on creativity, independence, and curiosity, fostering a young girl’s relationships with her peers while enhancing her level of autonomy.

Our preschool programs runs in conjunction with the Lower School academic school year (August-June) and runs daily from 8:00 a.m. to 2:33 p.m. We offer full and half day options, in addition to full-week and three-day options (M-W-F). Students who graduate from our preschool program have first opportunity to move on into our competitive elementary school program. Before and after care is available.
