Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Since its beginning, St. Paul's Episcopal Nursery School has been committed to providing a warm and enriching environment for preschoolers in Mt. Lebanon and surrounding neighborhoods. We thrive on a strong relationship among the school and our parents, which allows us to put the needs of each unique child first. Our philosophy has always been based on the concept that education should guide and challenge children towards developing lives of genuine meaning, purpose and service in the world they will inherit. Our curriculum is designed to prepare children for the active work of life...all in the spirit of play.
It is the purpose of the nursery school to provide a secure and happy environment in which children will flourish. Therefore, our focus strikes a balance between each child's intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development. We strive to develop self-confident, independent, caring, and inquisitive young people who feel comfortable attempting new challenges that will lead to pleasure in learning and respect for others in their world.
Our program is lead by an outstanding staff that encourages an exchange of ideas with each child through questions, observation and reaction. There is a fluid interaction between the teacher and child that gives the children the opportunity to lead and to be lead throughout their school day. St. Paul's places primary importance on creating opportunities for children to satisfy their natural curiosity and to find fulfilling outlets through music, art, literature, and fine and gross motor activity through dramatic and other forms of play
