Why Choose Mary Our Queen Preschool?

Talented Teachers

MOQ School is accredited by the state of Nebraska as well as Cognia, an advanced accreditation program. We nurture the spiritual, social, and intellectual growth of our young learners through engaging learning experiences guided by our knowledgeable and dedicated teaching staff. Our Early childhood endorsed teachers create hands-on learning experiences that deepen a child’s confidence while developing kindergarten readiness skills through play and a focus on specific academic goals. Our school also provides onsite counselor and learning specialists.

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

Our new Preschool building has its own atrium specifically prepared for the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program. Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a Montessori based faith formation curriculum for children ages 3-6. Lessons in the atrium are designed to awaken religious wonder and contemplation in the child, while giving him or her a strong foundation in the Bible and Catholic liturgical practices. Each child will participate in daily prayers, such as "Our Father", "Hail Mary", "Holy Mary", "Glory Be", "Angel of God", and "Meal Prayers". Students will reflect daily about the world around them and understand God's creations and love for them.

Flexibility for Families

Our preschool programs are designed with options for families. Enroll your child in our program for up to five days per week or as few as two days. Children may attend half days or full days. There is also Extended Care for before and after school. The MOQ Extended Care program offers flexible, dependable and nurturing before and after school childcare for students. A Lunch program is also provided.
