Welcome to St. Frances Cabrini Preschool & Young Fives

“Mini Monarchs”

We believe children learn to express themselves creatively through play and social interactions. We offer a developmental program based on interactions. Appropriate learning activities are planned according to the developmental needs and abilities of each child. Children can benefit from being with other children. They practice communicating with others and begin to develop social skills. Our vision is to build the future through our students by providing them with a strong spiritual and academic foundation.
