Trojan Tot baby
Respecting the blessing and potential of all children, Trojan Tots Preschool is committed to laying a foundation for the children we serve that is rooted in the teachings of Jesus Christ and supported by inquiry learning through a flexible, project-based curriculum.

This growth and development nurtured in each individual child contributes to the spirit of the Bishop Chatard community while preparing the children to begin their journey to become well-rounded in faith and inspired life-long learners.

Trojan Tots Preschool was created in 2008 to provide affordable, high-quality Early Childhood Education services and preschool for children, ages 6 weeks to 5 years old, of employees of Bishop Chatard High School as well as employees and parishioners of North Deanery Parishes.

We are dedicated to fulfilling the mission of Trojan Tots Preschool by creating a safe, loving and exciting learning environment for these children.

Trojan Tots Preschool is located in the St. Benedict Center on the campus of Bishop Chatard High School. The Director of Early Childhood Education at the preschool is Kathryn Grose.

Trojan Tots Too
In early 2022, Trojan Tots expanded their capacity to provide this same level of service to even more North Deanery families at a second location, in the space formerly operating as St. Joan of Arc Early Learning Center located at 4186 Broadway Street. Trojan Tots Too officially opened in August 2022.
