6 Advantages to Sending your Child to a Catholic Kindergarten in Towson

Parents have many choices today when it comes to education for their child. Building that “love of learning” foundation, is always a big decision for parents when it comes to selecting a kindergarten. For some children, kindergarten is the first exposure to an educational setting and the initial experience of the child’s independence without their parents assistance or presence. 

Choosing a Catholic Kindergarten program is often the choice of many parents and it not only provides that solid foundation and love for learning but extends many other advantages for the child, family and community.
