  • "I just want to lend my support to you and the teachers for the children to play outside.  I spent 32 years in public education in Washington State with 19 of those years as an elementary principal.  Playing outside is critical for child development and I am so glad that St. Andrew's Preschool recognizes that.  It is especially appreciated by us because our granddaughter lives in an apartment with no play area.  Blessings to all of you!!"
  • "St. Andrews provides the perfect start to school.  As a teacher, I appreciate the developmentally appropriate approach to early learning.  As a parent, I love the nurturing, caring, child-friendly environment.  St. Andrew's is a fabulous preschool!"
  • "St. Andrew has gone the extra mile to accommodate the needs of all the children making their experience a positive and successful one.  Thank you so much for all your guidance - it has made such a difference!"
  • "I love St. Andrews because I feel it is a wonderful balance between academic and creative progression for each age.  I highly recommend St. Andrews.  It really prepared my kids both socially and academically."
  • "Everyone makes our family feel welcome.  This is a very family friendly, child-centered preschool and we are happy to be a part of it!"
