St. Joan of Arc Preschool

St. Joan of Arc's preschool program offers a nurturing environment, where students are encouraged to discover, engage, interact, make mistakes, and problem solve.  The program is based on the Creative Curriculum, which aligns with Early Learning Content Standards approved by the Ohio Department of Education.  We also align our curriculum with the Diocese of Toledo Preschool Standards.  We offer a developmentally appropriate, differentiated curriculum to best serve the broad range of needs and interests of emergent learners.  Our students have full use of our outdoor playground equipment, bike track, and indoor gymnasium creating a balance between activity and structured learning.

"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."
