A child’s earliest years include some of the most unique and valuable stages in life

At Faithful Beginnings Preschool, our most important responsibility is to provide a safe, healthy, nurturing and responsive setting for your child. This is achieved through a developmentally appropriate curriculum that is an enriching addition to a child’s home experiences. The teachers at MMSA agree that even more important than what children carry in their backpacks, are the experiences they carry with them from their earliest years for the rest of their life.

Why choose Faithful Beginnings Preschool at Maternity of Mary-St. Andrew Catholic School for your child?

Because a child’s earliest years include some of the most important and formative stages of life. Because our experienced teachers will help shape and guide your child for years to come. Because we give children the opportunity to develop relationships, self-confidence, and respect for others in a safe, nurturing environment. Because most of our students continue on through elementary and middle school years together forming a close knit group of friends and a community they will be proud to be a part of for the rest of their life.

Our early childhood programs are fully-licensed through the State of Minnesota and accredited through the National Association of Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

      Schulze Family Foundation Scholarships are available for preschool families.
