St. Andrew Apostle School

Tiny Tots-2 year old program

St. Andrew Apostle School is excited to offer a program for two year old children. Our philosophy is formed on the knowledge that young children learn by playing and that their play reflects their continuous emotional, social, intellectual, and physical growth and development. Therefore, we are a play-based program and our curriculum goals are designed to meet the specific age needs and individual differences of two-year olds. Our staff, motivated by the love of Christ and committed to the pursuit of excellence in the apostolate of Catholic education, will strive to achieve, aided by your prayers and support, the following objectives:

  • To promote in the life of each child a personal relationship with God through an experience of a loving, caring, nurturing Christian Community;
  • To foster in each child a positive self-image and a spirit of inquiry and discovery that will inspire them to attain a mastery of curriculum commensurate with their potential by developing a sense of initiative, responsibility and respect;
  • To provide each child with fundamental knowledge and useable skills, and to develop in them sensitivity to cultural and aesthetic values;
  • To encourage each child in the daily practice of social graces through refinement in manners, speech, and interaction with peers;
  • To encourage the involvement and active cooperation of parents as partners in education.
