St. Elizabeth Ann Seton - Wichita, KS

Welcome to SEAS 2019-2020

Welcome to SEAS Preschool!

     My name is Elizabeth Brake, and this is the beginning of my 24th year in education, all teaching children under the age of 8. My husband and I have 3 children--two at Bishop Carroll and the oldest will be starting WSU in the Fall. All three went to SEAS! Our morning aides are Lisa Waymire (M-F) and Joan Walters (T/Th), and our PM aide is Sarah DeGroot. They are all Christ-filled women who will love your children! We are a team, and will work hard to make your child's first school experience a joyful one!

 We have 3 classes of preschool/pre-k. The Tuesday/Thursday 3 year-old-class is color-coded yellowMonday/Wednesday/Friday 4-5's AM class is redand the Monday-Friday 4-5's PM class is blue.


 Odds and Ends

+Pre-K 4/5 students may bring show and tell any day of the week and the theme will be on the monthly newsletters. The item must fit in their bag, and is optional. No show and tell for 3's Preschool until next semester.
