St. Andrew’s Nursery School & Kindergarten (www.staNurserySchool.com), located on Route 70 next to Ponzio’s Diner in Cherry Hill, continues registration for its 47th year!!  The school, voted a winner in the “Best Nursery School in South Jersey” contest by The Inquirer and Courier Post (10 years), began as an out-reach of the church in 1966 and continues to provide for children a warm and nurturing environment in which to explore and be creative. According to Director, Jill Mayo, B.S., M.Ed., “St. Andrew’s offers a well-rounded program with many more certified teachers than the state requires, and we keep the number of children in each class less than the state allows. These two factors ensure that the children receive necessary and valuable one-on-one attention.”

KINDERGARTEN ENRICHMENT includes the forgotten FUN part of kindergarten. It also reinforces the academic skills children are learning in their traditional kindergarten class.  This program enhances children’s public or private kindergarten program by adding experiences that enrich their skills-academically, emotionally, physically and socially. The Enrichment Program includes math, reading readiness, language arts, science, physical activities, music and creative arts. It encourages the development of positive self-esteem as children see themselves as readers, writers, artists, dancers and singers…and so much more!

The TRANSITIONAL KINDERGARTEN (5 years by December 31st) and NURSERY SCHOOL (21⁄2 - 4 years) hands-on curriculum helps prepare children for kindergarten and is centered around language arts, science, creative arts and music with the goal of fostering individual curiosity, language development and readiness for learning.  Classes are offered morning and afternoon.

MOTHER’S MORNING OUT is a program for children who are 2 years by October 1st.  The class is designed to aid in the development of a positive self-image, socialization skills and early school routines. Creative crafts, imaginative play, language development, physical development experiences, stories and songs are all provided in a nurturing environment.

TODDLER AND PARENT CLASSES are available for children who are 18-35 months by October 1st. In addition to the benefits for children, the objectives of the program are to enable parents to gain insight into the growth and learning patterns of their toddlers during this critical developmental stage.

Inquiries and inspection of the school facilities are invited. Open House every Thursday from 9:30–11:00 a.m. and 1:00–2:30 p.m. Visit on other days by appointment. Call the office (856) 429-4470 for a brochure or for more information. Visit www.staNurserySchool.com.  Limited openings are available for September.
