St. Joan of Arc Preschool
Well-rounded growth in a fun environment is key to preschool at SJA. Each child experiences hands-on, developmentally appropriate learning while growing both academically and socially. Spiritual growth is part of the program too; hence our slogan: "These little feet will follow Jesus!"
Based on your child's age, different program options are available. We offer a full day or half day program. Younger students are encouraged to attend M/W?/F or T/TH. Preschool students are encouraged to attend 4 or 5 days a week.

"My twins are in their second year of preschool at SJA. We love the warm, friendly staff who have been very supportive as we navigate the social nuances and emotional ups and downs of being preschool aged. We could not ask for better teachers who have truly sparked our kids' interest in learning and developing a strong faith-life. We are very excited to be a part of this wonderful community of educators for many years to come and would highly recommend that if you are looking for a Catholic education for your child in the Toledo area that you make an effort to tour our wonderful school to see for yourself."
