The curriculum of St. Andrew’s Preschool and Childcare is based on the concepts of Creative Curriculum. These concepts consist of hands on learning, age appropriate activities, that are teacher directed.  The curriculum engages the whole child in the areas of literacy, mathematics, science, and social studies.  The method used is the context of play in which the child learns through the motions of playing.  Multi-sensory and multicultural awareness are also incorporated into the curriculum.  Additional specials are offered to enhance the learning experience such as Art and Creative Movement/Music.

Our classrooms are busy and engaging!  The children are moving, exploring, and creating in a theme based environment.  There are learning centers provided to give opportunities for the children to explore and discover independently and confidently.  The teachers provide times for group activities as well as individual attention.  Not all children may be involved in the same activity at the same time.  It is important to allow children to make choices and to meet the needs of each child.
