Saint David’s Day School is a non-sectarian, separately incorporated half-day educational program for 3 and 4 year-olds.  Morning Preschool is offered for children who will be at least 3 years old by August 31.

The goals of Saint David’s Day School’s program are to:

Value each child as an individualUnderstand and meet the developmental needs of each childProvide opportunites for children to gain confidence and a healthy self-conceptEncourage children to become active participants in their learning through experience and exploration of hands-on materialsTeach problem solving, decision making and conflict resolutionPromote creativity as inspired by varied child-centered approachesEncourage in children an acceptance of others by establishing a classroom community

We plan each day so that children will:

Receive individual attentionFeel safe and secureDevelop satisfying relationships with other children and adultsDevelop self-disciplineExperience successes in order to develop a positive self-imageLearn to respect the personal and property rights of othersDevelop intellectual and physical skills

The Day School is located next door to St. David’s Church, at 760 Park St. Its program also makes use of the St. David’s Church campus for extensive outdoor activities and learning.

The Morning Preschool program operates Monday through Thursday mornings during the regular school year. Class times are from 8:15 am – 12:15 pm. The Day School calendar generally corresponds to the public school calendar in order to help families coordinate schedules with siblings.

The program and the teaching staff have excellent reputations, and there are often waiting lists for enrollment.
