WHAT IS ST. PAUL'S?

Children are encouraged to become part of a community of learners as they are given opportunities to form friendships with peers and to develop positive relationships with caring adults through the development of age appropriate social skills and emotional self awareness. We believe that young children grow and learn best in a nurturing environment where the burden of responsibility is not placed on the child to meet the needs of the program, but rather where the program meets the needs of the individual child. Our preschool curriculum encourages age appropriate independence and self regulation as our educators strive to help children comfortably persist at attempting new challenges and activities within the framework of a consistent daily schedule. St. Paul’s places primary importance on creating opportunities for children to learn by engaging with the world around them by finding fulfilling outlets in literature, developmentally appropriate math and science activities, music, art, movement, creative problem solving, and through all forms of play. St. Paul’s Episcopal Nursery School is located in Mt. Lebanon, Pennsylvania and has been accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) since 1988.
