St. Francis Preschool

Wednesday, January 30th, our Preschool is involved in an online donation program to raise money and awareness of Catholic Schools. Please join with people all over the country in showing their support of Catholic education today! 

Thank you for your generosity, and if you know of anyone who is interested in a Catholic Preschool program for their children (ages 18 months – 4 years of age) please have them contact our Director, Karen Bedore at 817-481-2685 or

On behalf of the St. Francis of Assisi Preschool, we want to invite you to come discover the warm and enriching environment that we’ve provided for the children and families of St. Francis since 1993.

The St. Francis of Assisi Preschool believes in educating the total child through spiritual, social, cognitive, and physical activities that support their natural development. Every student gets frequent opportunities to learn about their faith through prayer, blessings, the saints, and Chapel time. In addition, our developmentally appropriate curriculum prepares our students to meet the social, emotional, and intellectual expectations of Kindergarten.

You can take comfort in the knowledge that our teachers are highly qualified and experienced.  Our teachers have been with us an average of 10 years.  Because of our low staff turnover, our students and their families have an opportunity to build a strong bond that enables the children to thrive beyond the preschool years.

St. Francis Preschool, which is a member of the National Catholic Education Association, will begin enrollment for the 2018-2019 school year soon.  We invite you to come and visit our program to learn more about how we can support your family’s goal of education for your child.

To find out more or to schedule a tour, please contact Karen Bedore, Director of the Preschool, at 817-481-2685 ext 230 or

God Bless,
The St. Francis of Assisi Preschool Staff
