Stay & Play

St. Raphael Nursery School hosts Stay & Play drop-in sessions for parents, grandparents, and caregivers to bring their preschoolers-in-training to campus. Led by an experienced teacher and aide, our little friends enjoy music, art, circle time, stories, and more as they get comfortable at SRNS. This is a time for parents to connect, trade resources and tips, and just share with each other in our warm, welcoming Catholic setting. Join us!
