Our Objective

Our objective at New Beginnings Preschool is to provide a safe, nurturing, Christian environment that promotes the physical, social, spiritual, emotional, and cognitive development of children. We combine a variety of age-appropriate experiences and activities to encourage your child’s development in every way. 
Our primary curriculum covers all learning domains such as Literacy, Math, Science, Social Studies, Life Skills, and Character Development.  In addition to this, we also offer several Enrichment Programs such as Art Enrichment (Pre-K and TK classes),  Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, and “How to BEE” character development program.
All of the teachers at New Beginnings Preschool are highly-qualified Christian professionals with a true love for children and a deep love for God.  We are an extension of home, and believe strongly that it takes parents and teachers working as a TEAM with the unified goal of helping your children develop to their fullest potential.
Our campus is part of the lovely, natural, park like setting of St. James the Greater Catholic Church located at 139 Manor Avenue SW in Concord.
