St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church has offered weekday programs for young children since 1970. The Mother's Day out and the Day School were combined in 1996 to create what is now St. Andrew's Presbyterian Children's Place. The Children's Place is an integral part of the children's ministries of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church.
At St. Andrew’s Children’s Place, our mission is to provide a Christ-Centered environment that will inspire children’s spiritual, educational, physical, social, and emotional growth.
We are a loving school community that openly expresses Christian values. Because Christ acted and spoke on behalf of children, we, as Christ’s followers, are committed to make Christ known through love, guidance, and educational nurturing and protection given to children in order that they may have a more abundant life. Our objectives are as follows:
- To provide a Christian environment of excellence wherein children will be stimulated for maximum development and growth spiritually, intellectually, creatively, emotionally, physically, and socially.
- To provide a Christ-centered school with high standards of excellence for both teachers and students
- To provide a stimulating atmosphere for active learning and problem solving through modern teaching techniques and teacher-child relationships.
- To endeavor to meet the individual needs of each child and their family, being aware of interests, abilities and developmental differences
