Objectives

The Little Lambs' class is the first school experience for many students at St. Andrew, and we want to make it a positive one. A nurturing environment, where a hug may help dry a tear, is a key factor in enabling your child to feel safe and secure.

Our main goal, during this year, is to develop the social skills your preschooler will need for future success. By providing a myriad of interactive opportunities, children are guided in developing these skills. Walking in line, listening, talking turns, sharing, using good manners, and expressing ideas/feeling verbally are skills encouraged every day as children move about the classroom from one of the following learning centers to another:

If your child is in full time childcare and you would like to add Little Angels, Little Lambs, or Stars to their day, you will add $14 per week to your full time amount. If your child is in full time childcare and you would like to add Rainbows to their day, you will add $21 to your full time amount.
