Parish Day School

St. Michael’s Parish Day School is a half-day preschool program serving ages 1 to 5. We offer a child-centered program that emphasizes learning through play as well as social skills development. 


Registration for the 2017-18 school year is ongoing.  We have spaces available in the fall in our M/W and Tu/Thurs Older Toddler, MWF 3s and Transitional Kindergarten classes.  All other classes have waiting lists.
