Rochester Catholic Schools Preschool and Childcare programs provide creative play and learning for children ages 3-5. RCS Preschool offers a wide variety of activities in order to accommodate the abilities and interests of all children enrolled.

Each day the children have the opportunity to experience prayer, individual and small group learning, music, creative art, children’s literature, language development, activities which encourage fine and large motor development, and time to enhance their social skills. Our program also includes science discovery and exploration, drama, and outdoor play.

It is our goal to ensure that every child is safe, happy, and successful each day!
