St. Andrew’s Nursery School has managed to provide our 2 very different children with exactly the early childhood education experience they needed. The staff has truly become like family – providing a safe, caring, and fun place to learn, play, and explore. – Krista Peters

Four Year-Old Program

Our Four Year-Old Program is designed to prepare children who are four by October 1st for Kindergarten. Developing the whole child- intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically- is the basis of our program. The curriculum is play and art based, allowing each child to be an active, engaged learner.  Independence is fostered and encouraged.  The children must indicate a readiness to benefit from a group experience. Full day and half day classes are available and meet either 4 or 5 days each week. The fifth day is a dedicated STEM day designed to introduce concepts of prediction, reasoning and discovery as well as exploring the natural world of science with an opportunity to take part in multi-sensory experiences and scientific experiments.  Children who stay for the whole day enjoy an afternoon filled with enrichment activities promoting the development of positive self-esteem and social growth.
