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. The children must indicate a readiness to benefit from a group experience. Classes are available morning or afternoon, and meet either 4 or 5 days each week. Developing the whole child- intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically- is the basis of our program. The curriculum is play-based and technology enhanced, allowing each child to be an active, engaged learner. Independence is fostered and encouraged. Requests from public school Kindergarten teachers have been incorporated into our curriculum.
