If you're a parent looking for a Vero Beach elementary school education for your child, consider Saint Edward's School. Our Preschool program and Lower School faculty are dedicated to the education of the whole child: academic, social, emotional and physical. Our goals are to instill a love of learning, to develop self-esteem and to encourage independent thinking, while building a solid academic foundation.
Research shows that the quality and richness of a child's early learning experiences profoundly influence the foundation on which they build their social, emotional and academic future. At Saint Edward's, individualized one-on-one instruction allows children to develop to their fullest in a secure and supportive environment.
A content-rich early learning program is most important for a child's development of reading skills and vocabulary. Saint Edward's offers an enriched program in which letter formation, creative writing, exploration of numbers, shapes and patterns, hands-on science projects and Spanish as a second language is all included. The core curriculum includes reading, mathematics, writing, spelling, grammar, social studies and science. Learning enrichment includes computer science, library, visual, performing and musical arts and physical education. A specialist in each discipline provides instruction in all of these enrichment areas.
Off campus field trips and excursions on the Indian River Lagoon situated on our campus enhance instruction in both academic and special areas. Students are encouraged to develop their own special talents, and to become independent, self-directed learners.
The core program, at all levels, is accelerated for those students who need a greater challenge. Don't just choose any Vero Beach elementary school. A child's formative years have a substantial impact on the rest of their lives, and the difference in choosing Saint Edward's for your child's preschool and elementary school years are extraordinary.
