Welcome to St. Matthew’s Weekday School
St. Matthew’s Weekday School is an outreach of St. Matthew’s United Methodist Church. The Weekday School provides a part-day educational program that cultivates school preparedness, social and emotional intelligence, and Christian faith enrichment for children between the ages of two and five. The Weekday School believes that children of all backgrounds and faith are precious to God, and as such all children deserve a safe environment in which to learn and grow.
St. Matthew’s Weekday School has an enrollment of 102 children. Classes are typically comprised of up to sixteen students, a lead teacher, and one or more assistant teachers in the Preschool classes and six to eight students, a lead teacher, and one or more assistant teachers in the Toddler classes. For enrichment, there is a music and movement teacher on staff. All teachers are experienced professionals who truly enjoy working with young children
Our Philosophy: Children’s early years provide a foundation for growth and development for the rest of their lives. As children grow, they go through an orderly series of developmental stages that are basically the same for all children. The rate at which children progress through these stages can vary dramatically from one child to another. The program at St. Matthew’s Weekday School is based on the philosophy that each child develops at his/her own rate. To facilitate and maximize individual development, we create an environment that encourages children’s curiosity about the world and provides opportunities for thinking creatively and making decisions and choices within appropriate limits. Above all, St. Matthew’s provides an environment where love and respect are shown for each child and where all children learn to love and respect themselves and one another.
