Little Lions Preschool

At St. Mark Little Lions Preschool, we believe children learn by active exploration and problem solving. We encourage students to be creative, inquisitive, flexible, and kind.


We are committed to working closely with parents in order to provide an outstanding early childhood program that encourages the social, emotional, physical, intellectual, and spiritual growth of every child. We recognize each child as an individual and emphasize the value of process over product.

ur mission is to build a faithful community committed to nurturing each child and guiding them on the beginning of their journey of life-long learning.  We support a curriculum based on our belief that young children learn best through play. 


Our classroom is structured around learning centers and activities including: circle time, station rotations, dramatic play, gross and fine motor activities, science, and story time.

Our preschool students have weekly lessons in Music, Innovation and Technology, Art, Physical Education and Spanish; taught by elementary school teachers. The physical health and wellness of our students are well cared for by our full-time nurse on staff.

Our Preschool and Kindergarten teachers collaborate to ensure preschool graduates are well prepared to begin their journey to Kindergarten.

"The Little Lions Preschool exceeds our expectations. Julie goes above and beyond daily for the children and does it all with a smile. Our daughter is excited to go to school and continues to grow exponentially each new day. We are eager to see what the future holds for our daughter at St. Mark School."   -Jessica & Andy Tsichlas

"Little Lions is a wonderful place where your child will blossom right before your eyes. Mrs. Larracuente’s developmentally appropriate approach to teaching and learning is a true gift. We have been lucky to have two of our children go through the program and we couldn’t be happier with their first school experience. Our children were more than ready for Kindergarten!!"  
-Jaime & Sean Auten
