We are now accepting "Reserve Your Child's Space" Forms for both preschool and kindergarten for Fall 2024. Submit your child's form today! Email to tweber@boscocatholic.org or drop/mail to school.

Bosco Catholic School System's St. Joseph Preschool offers a learning environment that helps children grow socially, emotionally, cognitively, and physically. Our program is centered in the teachings and example of Christ and the traditions of Catholic faith. We encourage our students to explore and discover their surroundings, they learn how to play with others, problem solve, and use their imagination.

A focus on diverse learning styles leads our day. Our curriculum focuses on learning through play. With a variety of activities we grow and shape young minds. After-school care is available for full-day students.

BCSS preschool strives to form bonds towards a familial relationship within the classroom. We love and care for your children as if they were our own. Leading by the example set by Christ and a focus on the Golden rule, we nurture the development of empathy, love, caring, and concern for their peers.

St. Joseph Preschool is located in Raymond, Iowa. You may have noticed the new playground equipment we installed in 2023. Follow us on Facebook to see what's going on at St. Joseph.
