The St. Thomas More Preschool is a church-sponsored, self-supporting, non-profit organization licensed with the Colorado Department of Human Services, Division of Child Care.  The program is open to children of St. Thomas More parishioners and the surrounding community. The program does not discriminate due to race, creed or handicap. Children with special needs will be considered and evaluated on an individual basis and the program's capacity to meet the child's needs.


Program Goals

The goal of the program is to assist the parent by providing a Catholic environment with developmentally, age-appropriate curriculum encompassing physical, cognitive, and language skills, as well as self-expression in the social, emotional, academic and spiritual domains



The curriculum at St. Thomas More Catholic Preschool includes the Catholic faith, as well as areas of art, math, literacy/language arts, dramatic play (social studies), large muscle equipment, manipulative toys (fine motor), musical equipment, science material and yoga instruction.

Our program uses theme-based units to teach the goals and objectives of the Early Childhood Curriculum Guidelines.

The focus of our preschool is the further devleopment of social skills and the introduction to basic math and literacy concepts, as well as music, science, art, and of course, the Catholic faith.

These concepts are introduced through relevant themes and involve play, teacher-directed learning, group time, individual expression and multi-sensory activities.  Children will attend Mass or visit the Church on a regular basis.
