EVERY CHILD, EVERY DAY
St. Andrew's Kindergarten program seeks to facilitate the joy of learning and discovery within every child every day. With a purposefully inclusive Episcopal environment and a supportive collaborative learning community, children learn through an enhanced response to natural inquiry, engaged and meaningful play, and age-appropriate academic activities that inspire curiosity and learning. The program strives to meet the needs of each young learner and establish a foundation of social and emotional well-being.
Research indicates that children learn best through play and discovery. The architectural design and features of our brand new 5000 square foot Kindergarten Center and associated outdoor space have been purposefully constructed with this fact in mind. The Kindergarten space brings the outside in, opens up doors for exploration, kinesthetic learning, small group collaboration, makerspace, and builds a connection to the natural world. At any one time, several small groups of children can be working on a variety of activities: cooking, art work, literacy and math centers, music, or outdoor play. The open atrium allows for larger group gatherings including daily chapel service, morning meetings, and special performances.
