​ABOUT ST. ANDREW'S WEEKDAY SCHOOL

OUR PHILOSOPHY

St. Andrew’s United Methodist Church is called to ministry and, through the Weekday School program, provides support and nurture for children and families in its own congregation and in the community.  The church considers each child to be special and unique, a child of God.

Our philosophy of teaching is based on Developmentally Appropriate Practice.  Knowing young children learn in small groups through concrete experiences and interaction with other children and adults, the teachers will provide many materials and resources for exploration and discovery in developmentally appropriate ways.  A supportive environment allows each child to develop and achieve to his/her fullest potential--intellectually, physically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually--under the guidance of qualified teachers.
