Childcare: 3-4 Years-Old

Pacelli Catholic Schools offer a licensed childcare program that allows children to learn social skills in a safe and loving environment. By promoting spiritual, cognitive, and physical development each child has the opportunity to engage in activities that are geared to their interests while challenging them at their individual ability level.


The educational program is designed to provide developmentally appropriate learning experiences for the children throughout the day. Learning is enhanced in the following areas: large and small muscle development, arts and crafts, science, math readiness, self-help skills, emotional and social development.


The daycare program is open to children from all ethnic, cultural, racial, religious or special needs backgrounds, who are enrolled at St. Bronislava 3 Year Old Preschool and the public 4K programs. Children in the childcare facility must be 3 years old.

Families will receive a calendar during the first week of school that includes scheduled days off during the year. 3-year-old Preschool: Mon. & Wed. or Tues. & Thurs. from 9:00 am-11:30 am.

4 Year-Old Kindergarten

St. Bronislava offers 4 Year-Old Kindergarten (4K) as part of the Stevens Point Area Public School District. The program follows the Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards which specify developmentally appropriate expectations for children. The standards address a child’s health and physical development, social and emotional development, language development and communication skills, and cognition and general knowledge. By using these standards as a guide, the programs are all able to utilize a play-based exploration model that is child initiated.

The mission of the 4K program is to provide equal access to high quality early childhood education and learning experiences for all children.

Childcare: We offer childcare for 4K parents, including Fridays! Contact the school for more information.
