A Nurturing and Creative World

Enrolling Now for the Fall 2023-2024 School Year

Our Program

Educational Philosophy

St. Peter’s by the Sea is committed to providing a nurturing and secure environment for our children and families.
In a safe, age appropriate engaging environment, children learn and explore as they experience the world.
Our program provides freedom for children to have spontaneous play and interaction, where they make decisions, explore, solve problems and develop skills. In addition, we emphasize structured teacher directed activities. During this time children learn to focus attention and function as a group, fostering success and positive self esteem.


Our curriculum provides opportunities that encourage social, emotional, artistic, imaginative, physical, and spiritual development. Also it offers many activities that allow for development in cognitive academic areas.

Our qualified staff and small class sizes allow each child to develop at his or her pace, interest, and learning style. We emphasize the development of the whole child through active learning situations. Encouragement plays a vital role in each child’s success.

Our fully credentialed teachers encourage our children with these goals in mind.

  • To provide an enjoyable and rewarding experience

  • To nurture a positive self-image

  • To provide the opportunity for creative self-expression

  • To develop each child’s social skills of sharing, helping, and interacting with others

  • To teach children to understand and accept responsibility for their behavior
  • To offer curriculum areas of arts, science, math, language, imaginative play and large and small motor skills.

  • To help children understand themselves as uniquely created and loved by God

Typical Day

Early development is fundamental to the growth of your child.

We believe that children learn through play. During this time children choose from a variety of activities including puzzles, play-dough, manipulatives, science, math and games. In center time, we work our daily art project linked to a theme or number/letter. This gives the children the opportunity to follow directions, develop fine motor skills and be creative
This time provides language opportunities such as share, reading stories, and thoughts relating to the theme or letter of the day. We explore the seasons/ weather with the calendar in mind. Finger-plays and music/movement are great for circle time. We also incorporate games such as bingo, memory, matching and sequencing.
Each day the children enjoy our exciting outside play area. They develop social skills and gross motor skills. They are free to play in the sandbox, on the climber, and ride bicycles. We also offer sensory bins filled with water, beans and rice, and more…
