From the Director:

Hands-on activities that emphasize exploration and choice are used and encouraged. Our inquiry-based science kits in kindergarten are one example of this. Giving time to children to explore dramatic play and practice their social and self-help skills is also important. Children experience a variety of activities within a predictable routine that provides for a feeling of stability and interest.

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

The small clas sizes and experienced teachers are key when individualizing instruction. The teachers provide tutoring as needed and work with parents to maximize learning. Students who excel can take advantage of our many extra classes and also receive additinal challenges in the classroom in the areas of reading, math, and writing through teacher led activities and the computer.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The main goals of our curriculum are to help children develop a positive image towards themselves, their school, their peers and other adults. We do a number of activities throughout the year to emphasize each child's own special sense of worth. We stress understanding, sharing and cooperation throughout the entire curriculum.
Your child's initial school experience should be a pleasant and fun one. For most children, this is their first experience away from their parents. While some are shy and afraid, others are outgoing and precocious. Most are eager to learn and explore the world of school. All children have individual personalities, differing in background, maturity and abilities. To promote the maximum total development of each child, we try to provide a program that includes a wide variety of learning experiences. Though the daily activities differ according to the level of ability and maturity, the main goals remain the same.
A child's unique personality and potential is developed within a small group setting with a curriculum stressing social functioning, pre-academic readiness, art, music and physical education. Individual and group instruction is coupled with constructive play activities.
All Saints' Day School provides a positive and rewarding experience for children within a Christian environment. It is administered by a highly trained and caring staff. By intention, the enrollment remains small to insure a quality education.

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

There are regular progress reports that go home. A parent and teacher may meet any time, but are especially encouraged to do so during reporting periods. There are daily and weekly letters that go home to the parents to explain the activities and any at home follow up activities. All Saints' has its annual Open House and holiday programs where families can come together to celebrate their child. The very best part of our communication and connection to families comes in the form of daily contact between the children, the parents, and the staff of All Saints'.

Parents Say They are Encouraged to:

  • Sit on the board of trustees
  • Hold social events at the school to build community
  • Fundraise
  • Are able to visit the school anytime we want

  • Volunteer in the classroom
  • Receive newsletters

Modes of Communication

  • Notes

  • Drop-Off

  • Regular newsletter/printed updates circulated to the whole school


Separation is Handled through:

  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school
  • Small group sessions

Handling Separation: From the Director

Most of our new families have their children visit the school before classes start. One example is having the child enrolled in Summer Camp the week before school starts in order that they can meet their teachers informally and acquaint themselves with the campus. This can also be done on a case by case basis.

The other way in which separation is handled is through positive encouragement and parent training. We convey to the parents the importance of showing their child a firm, positive, and loving goodbye so that the child knows that mom or dad is feeling okay and that they are okay.

Finally, the teachers are very sensitive to the needs of the children and encourage them to express their feelings while at the same time have them focus on the positive friends and activities of the moment.
