Preschool Overview

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Preschool was founded in 1989. In 2005, SEAS preschool moved into the new facility, which is Seton Catholic School, serving children preschool through eighth grade. The Lord continues to bless us as we provide service to parish families and the community at large.

Extended Day

Our preschool program has the ability to provide full-time care and allow families to add morning and afternoon sessions of Extended Day for only the days and sessions needed. The focus for the Extended Day Program is to provide children consistency in their schedule, socialization, gross motor and fine motor development all in a faith based, nurturing environment. Mrs. Tricia Mitchell works with Preschool Director, Mrs. Graves to create and maintain this program.
