I would like to recommend this great preschool that my daughter is attending since it just opened last September. My daughter is really happy there, and I am happy too, because I see how much she is learning. Not only she'll be ready academically for kindergarten next year, but the school has helped her develop in all aspects of her personality, socially, spiritually and emotionally (not always easy for a strong 4 year old). The preschool is next door to the K-8 Wood Rose Academy, so it will be a natural transition to kindergarten. My other daughter is attending kindergarten there, so I know it's a great little school. The catholic teachings are not just a discourse, but you can see the kids living the Christian love and the virtues they are taught in the way they play at recess, they help each other, and even how they behave at home and relate to their siblings. I look forward to continue in this school, as I have been told from lots of parents wonderful things about how they grow strong in their foundation thanks to this catholic education. Check it out... you will be positively impressed. Open house February 1st 7PM. or visit https://sites.google.com/site/woodroseacademypreschool/home Linda
Re: Catholic Schools in Concord or Walnut Creek
If you are looking for a wonderful Catholic environment in Concord, I suggest you look at Wood Rose Academy (www.woodroseacademy.org). The school does not have its own church so it can't call itself a Catholic school, but its guiding principles are based on John Paul II and a wonderful philospophy called ''the gift of self''. Please go to the website and read more about it. It is an absolutely wonderful philosophy.
I found this school when I was contemplating St. Francis myself about 6 years ago. The school iteslf is only 7 years old but is growing by leaps and bounds each year. It started with 20 students and is now up to 80. The class size averages 13 (as compared to 30+ for St. Francis)!! The price is also reasonable in comparison to St. Francis/Queen of All Saints. Even though they don't have their own church, they attend first Friday Mass at Queen of all Saints.
The teachers, administration and board are wonderful and caring. Most of the board members also have children attending and all parents are encouraged to participate in classroom teaching and volunteering. aralday
