  • outheast Texas parents are fortunate to live in an area with a number of wonderful schools and educational op-portunities for our children. This is a wonderful time to examine how satisfied

    you are with your childs current school. Are they learning? Is your child happy? Does your child look forward to going to school each morning and come home in a good mood? If so, they are probably al-ready in a wonderful environment and you can look forward to their return to the same school in the fall. If you dont feel your child is advancing academically at an appropriate rate or if youre concerned that they arent fitting in or enjoying the experience of being in school, it might be time for a change. This month, the Kids Directory has chosen two special schools to feature: St. Andrews Presbyterian Day School and All Saints Epis-copal School. St. Andrews Day School feels like an extension of a happy home. Walking through the halls, the childrens voices are happy and enthusiastic. The adult voices are nurturing and engaged. It is quickly apparent that youve discovered one of those mythical schools where both the children and the teachers are happy to be there. The environment is very safe and comfortable, which these days is a bless-ing for students and teachers alike. St. Andrews is focused on taking care of and educating younger children from 12 months to Pre-K 4s. The teachers are wonderful and love working with our Southeast Texas children. St. Andrews Day School was established in 1964 and their focus on values, principals, and nurturing children has helped them remain a dominate force in educating young children. St. Andrews is geared towards teaching children to learn independently and through discovery. One of their most important tools is play. Organized play is utilized as a key learning tool at Saint Andrews. At many schools today, youll be surprised by what is not taught. Saint Andrews however teaches all of the kinds of things you would expect and want for your child- no key areas have been abandoned

    A Solid Education Begins with a Great Preschool!

    Sat Saint Andrews. Your child will learn science, cooking, motor skills, math, art, reading readiness, and writing skills. Want to kick it up a notch? Saint Andrews offers a strong music and chapel program, both areas many SETX parents have identified as essential- and both harder and harder to find. Saint Andrews even has a robust computer skills program. If your little one isnt quite ready for the Day School, Saint An-drews also offers one of the regions top Mothers Day Out programs. Mothers Day Out offers moms (or dads!) enough time to run errands, clean house, exercise, or to get a little down time. Bottom line- St. Andrews helps children develop strong values and morals while providing a wonderful educational foundationall in a loving and nurturing environment. Learn more online www.saintandy.org. All Saints Episcopal School is another wonderful Southeast Texas institution. All Saints serves PK3, PK4, and Kindergarten through 8th Grade. The All Saints campus is very welcoming and comforting. It has something of an Ivy League feel with lots of old oak trees and a great deal of attractive green space. All Saints Episcopal is also remarkable for the dedication of the parent base. Parents are frequently seen on campus assisting with vari-ous tasks and are extremely active in planning fund raising and special initiatives and projects to make sure All Saints is always prepared for the next generation of academic excellence.You may be surprised to see that many of the kids arent carrying around a lot of textbooks. All Saints is probably the leader in South-east Texas for embracing new technology. 6th, 7th, and 8th graders have already transitioned to having their textbooks on the IPad2 rather than traditional hardcover books. The rest of the school wont be far behind. All Saints students will all be transitioned to the IPad2 by 2015. Not only does the online format offer many unique learning op-portunities over hard copies, it is also much better for children to not carry around so many heavy traditional textbooks. All Saints provides a wonderful foundation for children looking to attend the most challenging colleges and to tackle the most demanding careers.
