Dedicated To Education

Young children are naturally curious about the world around them, and everything we do at St. Andrew’s Dayschool helps foster each child’s uniqueness. Project-based learning, grounded by a deep appreciation for child-centered curriculum, guides our approach to instruction. Our talented team of educators deepens each child’s sense of wonder as students engage in rich, meaningful, and relevant interactions. Our curriculum engages intentional read-aloud and kinesthetic, auditory, visual, and tactile learners built upon a developmentally appropriate framework. Through these learning experiences, we hope to prepare a generation of children to become creative, compassionate, critical thinkers in today’s ever-changing world.
