St. Gabriel's Cradle Preschool

 The St. Gabriel Cradle:  A Developmental Preschool Program with Heart


The Cradle is a developmental preschool and pre-kindergarten program for children 2, 3, 4 and 5 years-old.   Our lessons and activities are centered around a creative, developmental curriculum based on the belief that a child’s work is play.


Our Curriculum and Goals

Our program allows children to explore their world in a faith-filled, caring and nurturing environment, preparing them with the skills necessary for successful school years after they leave the Cradle. Our program seeks to:

  • To provide a safe, nurturing child-centered environment for all children, including those who may have special needs.
  • To plan and create a program based on the developmental milestones in a young child’s life, using appropriate lessons and activities to foster his or her developmental growth.
  • To provide a program that will nurture confidence, learning, and caring.
  • To show children and their families how special they are to God and us each day.
