Father Justin Learning Center – Nursing School & Pre-K

ST. NICHOLAS PRE-K is accepting children ages 2 1/2 to 5
We have large and airy classrooms, and daily sanitation according to the norms of health and safety.

In September 2003, a community of four Vocationist Sisters was created at St. Nicholas Convent, to staff our Nursery School and give new life and enthusiasm to our parish. Their dedication and competence already gained the affection of many parishioners. Today, Sister Benedita, Sister Emilia and Sister Joicy are the Vocationist nuns in the convent. Sister Benedita “Bene” is the school principal. Sister Emilia and Sister Joicy are Pre-K teachers. We hope that the Lord will continue to touch the lives of many young families of our parish as they dedicate wholeheartedly to the education of our children.

  “My daughter had very happy time at Father Justin Learning Center. Now, my very shy son is enjoying going here. I’m happy to hear him saying ‘I like school’. The teachers are all wonderful and very sweet. Always appreciate their care and patience. The facility is very organized and has a playground.
Highly recommended.” — Azusa H.

“There is no place like it! They are the most loving and caring teachers your children will EVER have. Both of my kids are students here and they look forward to coming to school. I can’t thank them enough for all their goodness! — Thais R. 

“I have sent all of my 3 kids to Father Justin Learning Center so I know Sr. Bene and other teachers very well for over 10 years. From Day One of school, I can tell you all my kids received exceptional care and advanced teaching compared to their peers. The classroom is super organized and each kid has spacious study and play area. My kids love the playground which is super clean where they have so much fun every day. Teachers are extremely nice and caring and they know every kid by heart. Class work and holiday artwork sent home assured me I found the best day care in the community. I can’t thank Sr. Bene enough for her dedicated heart running the learning center that benefits our next generation. Thank you!!!” — Jing X.
“Father Justin learning center has been a godsend. It could be hard to find a caring trustable daycare for a child but we found that environment at Father Justin’s. Our daughter loves to go there and shows us how much she’s learning. She comes home singing new songs and became quite good at her storytelling. She is fond of the sisters, teachers, caregivers, and her classmates. I regularly receive important feedback regarding my daughter’s day from meals to toileting. Throughout the pandemic, they follow safe protocols to prevent infection. My daughter is able to socialize and learn in a healthy loving environment. Thank you to everyone at Father Justin daycare!” — Mary B. 
제 아이는 한국 유치원 다니다 이곳으로 옮겼는데, 수녀님들도 너무 좋으시고 무엇보다도 예민한 제 아이가 좋아해서 선택한것에 큰 만족감을 가지고 믿음으로 보내고 있어요! — Youngmi L.
