Saint Joseph Parish is committed to providing high quality preschool programming that advances our mission of Catholic education in the heart of South Bend. Saint Joseph Preschool is a developmentally appropriate early childhood center focusing on creating the excellence in education with which Saint Joseph is synonymous. Opened in the fall of 2013, the preschool provides full and half day options for children aged three to five years. Our new facilities are located in Saint Joseph's Ackles Parish Life Center at 711 East Colfax Avenue in South Bend.

Saint Joseph Preschool Mission Statement

Our belief is in creating a loving, caring, faith-based environment where spirituality and education are our first priorities. Through Christ, we model this in our relationships with the children, their families, and each other. By using HighScope curriculum we provide for our children a developmentally appropriate environment that supports the individuality of each child.
