Early Childhood Education

Education is the greatest gift a parent can give their child. Saint Edward's School believes in the transformative power of education and instilling a sense of community and commitment to service. These lessons are artfully weaved into the classroom and after-school programs. Our four-year-old comes home practicing Spanish and sharing about her many campus adventures to the Library and the Butterfly Garden.

Key to Success: Getting the Right Start

The Early Childhood Education Program at Saint Edward's is designed with your child in mind. What distinguishes our early childhood programs is our purposeful, age-appropriate curriculum that allows differentiated instruction that addresses each child's specific learning styles and educational needs.

Our faculty have an inherent love for children. We strive to support our student’s growth as independent individuals. We nurture, but we also have an expectation that they embrace their autonomy and take steps toward being the best version of themselves. Discovering each child’s strengths empowers them to grow and develop to be the best they can be. 

Margaret Young, Early Childhood Teacher

One of the best parts of my job is having a front-row seat to watch a child’s transformation in the early childhood years. Here at Saint Edward’s School, we have the amazing opportunity to watch these children progress through the grades and graduate from the Upper School. It is such a rewarding experience knowing that my colleagues and I were a part of the very beginning stages of their learning journey.
