New Religious Ed Preschool Structure

By | Religious Education | No Comments

We’re happy to announce a new structure to our Religious Education Preschool for the 2017-18 school year. We will now have an open-enrollment structure, which means all preschool-aged (3-5) parishioners are welcome to drop in to any classes throughout the year as they are able. There will be no formal registration (parents will just sign in at the door at each class), and will be no cost to families to attend these classes.

Preschool classes will continue to be offered on Sundays from 9 – 10 a.m. in the St. Brigid Preschool classrooms (click here for the year’s schedule).

If you would like to learn more, please attend our open house in the preschool from 8:30 – 9 am, prior to the first class on Sunday, September 10. Children are then welcome to stay for the first class.

For questions or more information, please contact Tina White at twhite@stbrigidofkildare.org.
