St. Paul's Preschool admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, or athletic and other school administered programs. St. Paul offers this preschool as a service to the Missoula community and seeks to make this service available to all segments of this community.
St. Paul's Preschool operates as a supplement to the home and, as such, is designed as an educational center which places emphasis on the social and educational development of the child. The preschool fosters a Christian atmosphere in which each child is viewed as God's unique creation: Integral to this atmosphere are experiences which stress sharing, caring for one another, and learning trust. Acceptance by others, acceptance of others, and self-acceptance are all vital goals of our program. The basic premise for the framework of the preschool is that the child, as a natural learner, will, through intelligent and personal guidance, be mentally challenged, become more socially aware, gain a stronger sense of responsibility, and participate in enriching play experience.
