Mission Statement

The mission of St. Bonaventure’s early childhood program is to prepare our children for the future, ready to reach their potential as adults by providing and encouraging a lifetime of learning based on a Catholic value system.

St. Bonaventure’s Parish is committed to providing high quality Catholic Early Childhood Education for the children of the Columbus area.  The programs are designed to be child-centered and to have developmentally appropriate curriculums that will encourage positive self confidence and foster favorable dispositions towards learning.

Each child is a gift from God and is special in his/ her own right.  We hope to build on each child’s strengths and to promote spiritual, social, physical, intellectual, and emotional growth.
