St. Andrew’s Nursery School and Kindergarten in Cherry Hill, NJ
Our private, non-profit school has received the honor of being a winner in the “Best Nursery School in South Jersey” contest consistently since 2001. We were established in 1966 as an outreach of St. Andrew’s United Methodist Church and continue to provide for children a warm and nurturing environment in which to explore and be creative.
The philosophy of the school centers on an age-appropriate developmental program and learning through play. Our program focuses on the development of the whole child – intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically.
Research indicates and we believe that the impact of education at the pre-school age has a far stronger and lasting effect than at any other age. The first five years of a child’s life are the years when physical growth, mental capacity, emotions and communication are most marked and most important. Even the best home environment needs to be tempered with early contacts with groups of children to encourage socialization skills.
