Welcome to St. Mark Preschool of Santa Barbara!
We embrace childhood by encouraging discovery through hands-on learning and open-ended play, creating a solid foundation and a love of learning. We stimulate an atmosphere of acceptance, in which children develop self-esteem and confidence in their place in the world. Families are supported by our philosophy of respect, resulting in a community where
we work together to create a wonderful place for children to learn.
We play with a purpose and our children thrive!
Reopening School August 26th!!
After much discussion and careful consideration, St. Mark Preschool will be reopening on Wednesday, August 26, 2020 with a modified schedule, 9:00-2:00p.m. Then the following Monday, August 31st, we will move to a full-time schedule 7:45-5:15p.m. The reason for this initial 3-day modified schedule is to allow time to get used to all of the new procedures we will be instituting to keep the children, parents, and staff as safe as possible.
Safety Protocol Highlights
Upon reopening, we will be instituting different safety protocols and practices until therapeutics to treat the disease and/or a vaccine are developed. However, the atmosphere where children are able to grow, learn and thrive will always be in place.
The highlights of the safety protocols we are developing for reopening St. Mark Preschool are developed from information gleaned from the CDC, Santa Barbara County Public Health, and Community Care Licensing. (The safety highlights pdf can be downloaded from our website homepage.) As the COVID-19 situation and public health guidelines rapidly change, we will be closely monitoring the situation and sending regular updates to St Mark parents and families.
