PreK and Kindergarten Program

PreK StudentsPreK Program

Our nurturing, high quality PreK (PreKindergarten) program is an excellent value compared with daycare. Children must be potty trained and be at least 3 years of age by the beginning of school. This is an academic program that prepares each child for Kindergarten. PreK students participate in all school functions as appropriate. They wear the St. Andrew Academy PE Uniform.

The PreK class meets Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. Tuition for Pre-K is $7,461 plus a $100 application fee due at registration. Participation in the Morning Program (opens at 6:45 a.m.) and the After-School Program (available until 5:30 p.m.) are included in the cost of our Pre-Kindergarten program. St. Andrew Academy also accepts Care4Kids, a State of Connecticut program. 

Kindergarten Program

St. Andrew Academy is pleased to offer a full-day Kindergarten. Children must be 5 years of age by December 31. The program includes learning letters and recognizing their sounds, rhyming words, basic sight words, beginning and ending sounds. They will learn to write letters, words, and simple sentences. In mathematics, in addition to counting, and writing numbers, the children also learn simple addition. Students have “Center Days” that allow for creative interaction and experimentation. Kindergarten students wear the gym uniform and sneakers each day. 

All students entering PreK will be screened by a teacher beginning in February and Kindergarten will be screened by a teacher in March. Teachers administer a short assessment to determine a student's eligibility for success in our program. Parents will be notified regarding their test date and time.
