What Our Parents are Saying

"St. Mark Little Lions in Stratford is the most AMAZING program. I can go on for hours about how happy I am, both as a parent and a teacher. If you want to chat, pm me. I can't say enough good things!!!!!"

"They have a fabulous preschool program. I was a preschool teacher and it is one of the best programs I've seen with amazing, caring, nurturing teachers."


Preschool enrollment will follow the schedule below:
1. A one-week priority enrollment period will begin the first Tuesday that St. Mark School is in session in January. Priority enrollment will be offered to currently enrolled Preschool students, their siblings, and siblings of St. Mark School.
2. Beginning the following Tuesday in January, a one-week early enrollment period will be offered to St. Mark parishioners.
3. Beginning the third Tuesday in January, enrollment will be open to the general public and spots reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.
4. We welcome enrollment to all children regardless of race, religious affiliation, national origin, or sex.

Enrollment Requirements
All children enrolled in our program must have a current physical examination, all State required immunizations, and a complete and current health form must be on file in the St. Mark School office. Physical exams are current for one year (from the date of the exam) and must be updated as required to remain current. A child whose physical exam is not current will be asked to remain out of class until seen by a physician. The Town of Stratford provides a daily nurse to cover the preschool through grade at eight classes at Saint Mark School. All children must be potty-trained and non-diaper dependant as of the first day of preschool in September.

Provisional Enrollment Period
It is understood that all children are enrolled for an eight-week trial period. The school staff will evaluate each child’s readiness and will give a 30-day written notice if it is deemed that the program is not meeting the child’s needs.

St. Mark School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions, policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs
