" At the heart of St. David's approach to early childhood education is the belief that the preschool years provide a significant opportunity for educating and guiding young children in all areas of their development.
St. David's "whole child" approach recognizes that children learn best in a setting where they can explore, exercise their curiosity and imagination, and develop social relationships through play within a safe, nurturing, and secure environment. A fundamental key to this approach is embracing developmentally appropriate practices and recognizing the importance of fostering the children's emotional intelligence.
At St. David's, each child is viewed as an individual, who at different points in time, displays a readiness for growth in specific areas. By providing experiences that build competence and confidence, the staff at St. David's help lay the foundation for future growth and learning.
