Children (and parents alike!) often enjoy the optional Discovery Days that we are able to offer on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. For Discovery Days, your child may bring a lunch and stay for an extended time of socialization in a lightly structured preschool environment. It is open to all children enrolled as MPCP students who are toilet trained. A fee is charged for each child in attendance.

To register your child, you can include your need for this service when you return your annual paperwork in June or you can call the preschool office (412-366-8201) and ask that your child’s name be placed on the list for a specific day. Space is limited to 16 participants on each day. Registration is usually completed by noon the Friday prior, but sometimes a space can open up the morning of extended session.

Our Preschool Facilities

Our classes are held in five brightly colored classrooms (4 large rooms and 1 smaller room for 2 year olds). We also have a spacious resource room and staff office. Other storage areas are configured for easy access to classroom materials. An additional staff room is used for parent conferences and other meetings. It is a joy to be at home in facilities that are updated and ready to welcome children. The preschool area is served by three doors, two of which lead to the exterior and the daily car pool line. Children will arrive and leave via these exterior doors. Outside support personnel and parents will enter through the main church doors into the narthex and bear to the right, arriving at the interior locked preschool entrance. Pressing the chime to the left of that door will alert preschool personnel that someone has arrived at that door. Of course, calling the preschool office (412.366.8201) in the event of an emergency pick-up is important to gain admission.
