St. Ignatius Early Childhood Center


Welcome to our Early Childhood Center, celebrating over 35 years of quality early childhood education. St Ignatius Early Childhood Center is a ministry of St. Ignatius of Antioch Catholic Church, and is part of the Schools and Centers of the Diocese of St. Petersburg. 

                              Our Philosophy

Our Early Childhood Center is foremost a Catholic School where two, three, four and five year olds are given opportunities to develop spiritually, socially, physically, emotionally and intellectually. Each child is a special little human being with individual needs. St. Ignatius provides the a staff, program and enviroment to enhance the growth and development of young children. To accomplish our task, we work closely with parents in a complementary manner. We are dedicated to the goal of providing developmentally appropriate programs aimed at total child development.

Our beautiful free standing preschool  is located at 725 East Orange Street in Tarpon Springs near the intercession of US 19 North and Tarpon Avenue, behind the Parish Office.
