St. Andrew’s Day School was established in September of 1964. The school is a non-profit organization housed in St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Beaumont, Texas. The Day School is self-sustaining but under the umbrella of the church. All tuition and other fees are used to provide staff salaries, equipment and supplies.
St. Andrew’s Day School is fully licensed by the State of Texas. Our teacher to child ratio is kept low, well below the minimum standards for child care.
We have classes five days a week, nine months a year. The Beaumont Independent School District schedule is followed both for holidays and school days cancelled due to weather conditions.
Independence and the ability to learn through discovery are both major goals for each child. Play is a primary vehicle for learning. Children learn by doing, therefore, many active learning opportunities are provided via thematic units. St. Andrew’s Day School is excited to announce our new curriculum for the up coming years is Frog Street Curriculum. We will use this in all classrooms. This state recognized curriculum believes that children learn best through actively engaging with people and things in their environment. Children are involved in hands on experiences, real life adventures, and assisted discovery as they explore concepts through play. St. Andrew’s is a place where essential readiness skills are nurtured through play, investigation, and of course fun! These programs provide developmentally and age appropriate activities and materials for exciting and wonder filled environments. www.frogstreetpress.com. In addition to regular classroom activities, we have music, computer, introduction to fine art, Spanish and chapel.
The purpose of St. Andrew’s Day School is to help your child learn in a happy, Christian atmosphere, and to grow in these ways:
- Emotionally – to learn to manage tension and hostility in an acceptable manner and feel accepted by his teachers and peers.
- Socially – to learn to be thoughtful and to adjust to the group.
- Cognitively – by stimulating curiosity and imagination, encouraging thinking and problem solving, and developing language skills at the child’s own rate of speed.
- Physically – acquiring gross motor coordination through the use of proper play equipment, honing fine motor skills through developmentally appropriate activities.
- Spiritually– the religious training we provide is informal and non-sectarian. Through the teachers attitudes and the atmosphere established in the classroom, the child appreciates God’s world and learns to identify himself as part of God’s people.
