Abiding Presence Preschool provides a safe and educationally stimulating environment for children ages two to five to grow, to learn, and to develop physically, emotionally, socially, intellectually, and spiritually by:

     • encouraging the child to feel secure in the love of God

for others by encouraging cooperation in work and play, fostering a spirit of sharing

     • encouraging the development of skills through the use of  developmentally appropriate activities that respect the individual characteristics, learning styles,and interests of the child

     • encouraging the child’s innate sense of curiosity; developing his/her intellect through natural interaction with real things in the child’s environment

“The biggest blessing to our family this school year was enrolling my 4-year old daughter in Abiding Presence Preschool. Our daughter loves her school, her teachers and her friends. The teachers are excellent! They encourage independence and have helped my daughter be more than ready for kindergarten. The director, is an incredible leader and runs a wonderful program. The entire team work with the kids with so much patience and love! I am deeply grateful for the trust they continuously inspire in me as I leave the most precious piece of me in their care. My only regret is not finding APLC Preschool sooner!” ~Diosalma

News from

Abiding Presence Preschool

We are immersed in all things Fall! Students worked hard all week creating beautiful projects for Back to School Night, which was held on Wednesday, October 14th. Parents were elated to get an inside look at their children’s classrooms, meet the teachers and learn about the routines and schedules of the class. It was wonderful to be able to welcome parents into our building, for a safe, socially distanced, yet personal gathering. They were all so happy to be able to connect on a home/school level. We also had a Chapel visit where Ms. Karen (Schifellite) blessed all of our stuffed animals! Thank you Ms. Karen! Our photographer will visit us on October 28th and provide an outdoor photo shoot for our students. All students are anticipating our Halloween events including Blessing of the Costumes in Chapel! Stay tuned for more exciting happenings! Julia McLaughlin- Director
