February 23rd is Preschool & Kindergarten Readiness Day!

Welcome perspective Preschool & Kindergarten Families!



At St. Mary Magdalen School as part of the admission process, we invite new families to join us for our Readiness Day.  There will be two sessions for both Preschool & Kindergarten.  To be eligible to participate, you must submit an application by February 20, 2019Click here to print our flyer.



What is Readiness Day? Readiness Day is a wonderful opportunity for our teachers to get to know your child.  It is also a time for parents to ask questions of the administration.  Each student will be assigned to a 30 minute session.  There will be approximately 10 students per session.  Students will be guided to classrooms by the teachers and will use the time to play with other students and work one-on-one with one of our teacher’s to complete a short assessment.  Parents are invited to remain in our library where we host refreshments and give families time to speak with our Principal and Administrative Staff.

How do I sign up for Readiness Day?  By completing an application by February 20th, you will automatically be signed up for Readiness Day.  Kristin Moore, Director of Development & Admissions will be in touch with you about your session time upon the completion of your application.  Click here for our online application.

If I am unable to attend on February 23rd, will there be another opportunity?  Yes.  We will schedule a date that works for your family.  It will be in a much simpler format but the opportunity to work with the teacher and ask questions of the St. Mary Magdalen Administrative team will be available.

How can I help my child prepare?  We have developed a list of benchmarks that we will be looking for in our incoming students.  One way you could prepare is to print out the list and work on these skills at home leading up to Readiness Day.  Click on the link below to print your checklist.
