"Let the little children come to me..."

Love of Learning.
Love of Others.

Our mission at Saint Andrews-Covenant Presbyterian Church Preschool is to provide the highest quality, developmentally appropriate education for young children in a warm, nurturing setting. We will continually strive to create a Christian environment with rich experiences to further children's love of learning, love of others, and love of God.

Theme based learning to inspire and nurture.

We use a  theme based curriculum that includes student-directed and teacher-directed activities as we strive to  meet the needs of each child individually.  Lessons around a theme usually contain art, math, reading, science,  singing, dancing and cooking.  We use learning stations, circle time, yoga, chapel, Spanish, music, and our outdoor classroom to give each student a balanced education that will prepare them for the future.
