St. Joseph Preschool has some exciting news for everyone in the community! We have just received permission from our licensing agency to accept 2½ year-old children into our preschool program! This means that potty-trained children with a birth date on or before March 31, 2016 are eligible for enrollment. Please spread the news with your friends and family as we look forward to adding these toddlers to our program. Interested parents can call (419) 882-9701 or email Nancy Okuley at

St. Joseph Preschool is a parochial school, an educational ministry of St. Joseph Parish with an established reputation for educational excellence.  Its Catholic identity is the core of its mission and underlies the spiritual, academic, physical, and emotional growth of the students enrolled. The strong commitment creates a climate that supports the needs of growing children.  St. Joseph Preschool is where a young child's journey in quality education can begin.

Preschool children are unique individuals who learn best through PLAY and hands-on experiences at their own developmental level. This offers success, eases tensions, fosters decision-making, aids creativity and cooperation, and develops competency. Our classrooms support the interest of the children while fostering a love of God and for each other.

The St. Joseph Preschool Program conforms to the Diocese of Toledo Preschool Course of Study and the Early Learning Content Standards of the Ohio Department of Education. Our school year is closely aligned with the calendar of St. Joseph School.

Our innovative preschool is designed for children ages 3, 4, and 5. Our preschool curriculum includes hands-on activity centers, circle and story times, religious education and prayer, music, movement, science areas, snack and outdoor play time. Parents may choose to enroll in morning preschool for 2, 3, 4, or 5 days per week. We also offer an Extended Day Enrichment Program 11:15 AM -3:30 PM, Monday - Friday, along with a before-school program, 7:30 AM - 8:30 AM, and an afternoon program, 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM.
