Our curriculum is…

  • Play-based. We believe play is the hard work of a child, and we know they learn best through it.
  • Focused on the Arizona Early Learning Standards.
  • Developmentally appropriate and individualized to meet the needs of our students.
  • Comprised of monthly Christian-based themes.

We have a heart for children at St. Andrews, and it definitely shows in our classrooms!

The school is governed by the St. Andrew’s Preschool/Kindergarten Advisory Board.

Our School’s COVID-19 Plan

How We’re Staying Safe

  • Mandatory temperature checks for both staff and students prior to entering the classroom. Temperatures above the CDC recommendation of 100. 4 will not be admitted into the classroom.

  • Staggered drop-off times to limit the number of people on campus at a time. Additionally, parents are not permitted to remain on campus after drop off or to enter the classroom without a temperature check.

  • Mandatory PPE for adults and staff on campus. Children are not required to wear masks at this time.

  • Classroom wellness checks delivered to parents every morning via text to gauge the health of the classroom prior to choosing to take their child to school for the day.

  • Reduced classroom ratios to no more than 9 students in preschool classes and 10 in kindergarten with one full-time teacher and one shared associate.

  • Increased cleaning throughout the classrooms, shared bathrooms, and playground throughout the day as well as a thorough cleaning each night.

  • Shared supplies such as toys are disinfected daily by teachers prior to being used the following day.

  • Removal of rugs, fabrics, or porous items from the classroom that cannot be properly disinfected daily.

  • Contact-less pickup of students each day.

  • No intermixing of classes. Students stay with their class and either remain in their classrooms or play on the playground with their class only.
