“Our third child will be starting at the Preschools of St. Andrew’s this fall. Shannon and Denise are qualified and caring. They have helped each of our children prepare for kindergarten. All have excelled coming out of St. Andrew’s. Additionally, each child has grown in their faith and social skills. Thank you, Preschools of St. Andrew’s!!” – Margot K.
“My child is a shy type but with the help of St. Andrew’s and teachers, Ms. Denise and Ms. Shannon, he was able to enhance his self-confidence. This school produces well-wired minds, helping children discover their world and gain the skills they need.” – Decedelyn R.
“I cannot say enough about the experience my family has had at the Preschools of St. Andrews. My 6-year, 4-year old, and my 1-year old have all been or are currently enrolled in the program. As a kindergarten teacher myself, I am passionate about the quality of preschool programs my children attend, and this one is top notch. The daily schedule and curriculum is developmentally appropriate for young children, while also preparing them well for the rigors of kindergarten. The field trips and daily outings to chapel, Spanish class and visiting grand-friends enrich my child’s experience in ways that only this school can. And, I cannot say enough about the teachers. They love and care for their students like they are their own. They go above and beyond to reach each child where they are at, and gently challenge each one to learn, grow and thrive. It is with all my heart that I recommend the Preschools of St. Andrews.” – Abby J.
“The Preschools of St. Andrew’s is truly an amazing place! Our family was blessed to have attended this school for six years. My children love St. Andrew’s! The best part of this preschool is that Ms. Shannon and Ms. Denise treat you like family and care for your child like their own. The teachers not only teach the children the ABC’s in the classroom but also instill the importance of religious faith. We highly recommend St. Andrew’s! This Christian program has everything your child needs to succeed in preschool and then goes above and beyond. St. Andrew’s is special because of all the extra, unique activities built in during the school day, like visiting with “Grandfriends”, singing Spanish songs, incredibly special birthday blessings for each child, visits from Joe the Juggler, sledding on the hill, and chapel time with Ms. Beth and Pastor Brian. This community is truly blessed to have these teachers and this school in Mahtomedi.” – Kristi N.
“The preschool and the teachers show so much care for students AND families. The amazing efforts that are put into exciting themes, lessons, field trips, and projects for the students is astounding. Students not only learn so many skills to make them successful in school, they also learn to love learning which is the most important aspect for their future education. I’m so thankful we found this gem of a preschool in our community! – Erica W.
“We couldn’t be happier with the Preschools of St. Andrews. Our kids are so happy there. The staff and teachers provide such a nurturing and loving environment while providing great curriculum along with a number of other great offerings like Spanish, Music, Dance, and Soccer. We love walking the halls and seeing all of the smiling faces and all of the fun projects and artwork they do each week. We are so thankful to have found such a great home for our family and know we will have memories to last a lifetime from the preschool, staff, teachers and friends we have made.” – Jenny and Nick H.
“I am so thankful we found The Preschools of St. Andrew’s Half Day Preschool. Both of my boys have been lucky to attend preschool with Ms. Denise and Ms. Shannon. It is a top-notch program with incredible and highly experienced teachers, and a solid curriculum. I especially love the parent communication, the take-home projects, the hands-on approach, the weekly classroom themes, the dedication to the arts/culture (field trips, extended options, music and Spanish specialists), and the faith-based approach to learning. This program is definitely preparing my child for kindergarten emotionally, socially, and academically.” – Amanda M.
“Our time with The Preschools at St. Andrew’s began when our oldest daughter was almost three. Here we are nearly six years later with our third daughter heading into her last year at the preschool. It has been such a blessing to our lives! We have so appreciated the kind and caring teachers along with the Christ-centered teaching. It has been comforting to drop off our children knowing they will feel safe and loved. From the time spent with “grandfriends” to the Spanish and music classes to the genuine sense of community- we would recommend The Preschools of St. Andrew’s wholeheartedly to all we know! – Jennifer
“We absolutely love the Preschools of St Andrews! We feel connected and welcomed on a daily basis through consistent interactions with the directors, staff and teachers. We are at ease knowing our kids are learning daily, making friends and that they are well cared for by long-term, outstanding teachers! Our preschoolers are getting a wonderful, faith-based education that is solidly preparing them for kindergarten and beyond.” – Sarah
“St. Andrew’s taught our children not just the ABCs and 123s, but compassion and caring. The staff is incredibly focused on seeing each child as an individual, adapting to their natural skills and filling in with the necessary lessons to help them develop. We felt like St Andrew’s staff became more than just teachers to our kids, but were advocates for helping our entire family grow in love, patience, and understanding. The kids had so much fun, fun, fun but also were challenged daily with new lessons and life coping skills. They learned about nature, friendships, creativity, sharing, community, and how to become a great citizen and good soul. Our time at St. Andrew’s will always be precious to our family.” – Meg
