Dear Friends,

Thank you for your interest in St. Jerome Early Childhood Center.  Established in 1990, we are celebrating our 25th year of service to our parish and community this year.  God has been so good to us!  We have been blessed with faith-filled dedicated teachers and staff. Our families are involved and supportive of all of our efforts, as we seek to provide the best possible early childhood program for children ages 2-5.  As a nationally accredited (NAEYC) educational program, the environment we provide is one of the highest quality, as we serve the needs of the whole child – physically, socially, emotionally, academically and most importantly, spiritually.  First and foremost, St. Jerome ECC is a Catholic school, one where the presence of Christ is known in our words and in our actions.

I have had the pleasure of serving as the school’s administrator since 1993.  I have worked side by side with staff and families to continually seek ways to improve our early childhood program. Our preschool children are more than well-prepared for their educational and spiritual journey as they leave St. Jerome ECC.  We continue to hold each one in prayer. We are humbled and honored to have been their first step out into the world. We know that God will be with them on their journey and we ask for God’s blessing as we continue our work in His Name. 

Sincerely in Christ,

Denise Roach, Administrator
