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!
COVID-19 Update (June 10th):As we continue in this COVID-19 crisis, we extend a virtual hug to all families in these hard and trying times. We are currently planning procedures on how and when to safely reopen the Preschool. Whether that be through a possible summer modified program and/or reopen for the 2020-2021 School Year on August 24, the safety of our children and staff are of utmost importance.
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.
