Little Falcons at St. Matthew's

What is Little Falcons?


Little Falcons is a 5-day per week drop-off program for children who are two (2) years old by August 1 of the year they wish to begin the program. Classes meet from 8:30-11:30am and the afternoon class meets from 12:30-3:30pm Monday through Friday from September through mid-June of each year.


Little Falcons provides a safe and positive transition from a parent-toddler program to the greater independence of preschool. Through play-based instruction with experienced, caring teachers, students will:


  • build confidence
  • gain valuable social and emotional skills
  • cultivate a positive self-image
  • develop language, number sense, science, and art concepts
  • foster a love of learning
  • enjoy hands-on experiences through art, stories, music, movement, and play
  • develop readiness for a longer preschool day
To visit the campus and see the Little Falcons classroom, please email Kristin Sigala at [email protected] to schedule a meeting.

Is this an automatic path into St. Matthew's Parish School?
Parents often ask if participation in Little Falcons is a prerequisite for admission to St. Matthew's Parish School. It is not. Little Falcons is an auxiliary program of St. Matthew's and admission to the School is separate and distinct. Entry into the Little Falcons program does, however, provide families a wonderful opportunity to see our School's incredible campus, experience the strong caliber of care and holistic approach to learning, and provide familiarity with our community.
We encourage parents who are interested in admission to Preschool at St. Matthew's to submit an application for admission. Additional information is available in the Admission section of the School website.
