If you are new to our parish and have a child who turned 5 on or before July 31, please contact the school for more information about our kindergarten program. Either call the office at 402-339-8706 or send an email to:

We have 3 sections of kindergarten, and class sizes are small with no more than 20 per class. In addition, we have 3 teacher aides who are assigned to help in kindergarten.

If your child does not turn 5 by the deadline, we can not enroll him/her for kindergarten unless s/he can pass the readiness test administered by the school district where you reside. Please contact your school district of residence for more information on their testing policies and procedures.

For those who do not meet the age requirements for kindergarten, we recommend Sacred Heart Preschool. This is another great ministry of our parish family focused on the spiritual, physical, and intellectual growth of young children.
