The Benedictine Sisters of Elizabeth NJ have been serving the people of the Elizabeth area since 1868.  Combining Catholic values with their belief in the necessity for quality preschool education, the Benedictine Sisters established the Benedictine Preschool in 1996.

Benedictine Preschool promotes, expects and encourages kindness and love, respect, integrity and service to others. We strive to develop well-rounded students by encouraging the intellectual, social, physical and spiritual growth of every child, through a process oriented, developmentally appropriate program.

We are a state licensed preschool conducted by the Benedictine Sisters, with full day, partial day and extended day programs for students 2 ½ - 5 years of age.

We invite you to visit Benedictine Preschool located on the grounds of St. Walburga Monastery to learn more about our project based curriculum infused with Catholic values.  Come and experience a preschool where young minds grow!

 Early Childhood Educators are Professionals within the field of Teaching.  While we value the work of the NEA, we have our own professional associations.   These associations offer valuable services to educators and the families of the children in our care.  We encourage you to investigate the websites of these organizations.
