Sacred Heart Catholic Preschool

Sacred Heart Catholic Preschool offers a loving, structured environment based on Catholic values and state standards for early childhood education.  Our children learn about our Catholic Christian faith through age-appropriate religious instruction.  Children are guided to live our faith through their actions and words towards others and themselves.  We are licensed by the Department of Health Services and participate in First Things First.  Please call the Preschool Director, Mr. Steve Cunningham, at 445-3141 for more information and to set up a tour.

Our facility is licensed by the Arizona Department of Health Services, 150   N. 18th Street, Ste. 400, Phoenix, Arizona, 85007, 602-364-2539.
