Welcome to St. Paul's Episcopal Nursery School, a vibrant and nurturing place for children and their families. Since its beginning, St. Paul's Episcopal Nursery School has been committed to providing a warm and enriching environment for preschoolers in Mt. Lebanon and surrounding neighborhoods. We thrive on a strong relationship between the school and our parents, which allows us to put the needs of each unique child first. Our philosophy has always been based on the concept that education should guide and challenge children toward developing lives of genuine meaning, purpose and service in the world they will inherit. Our curriculum is designed to prepare children for the active work of life...all in the spirit of play.
It is the purpose of the nursery school to provide a secure and happy environment in which children will flourish. Therefore, our focus strikes a balance between each child's intellectual, social, emotional and physical development. We strive to develop self-confident, independent, caring and inquisitive young people who feel comfortable attempting new challenges that will lead to pleasure in learning and respect for others in their world.
Our program is led by an outstanding staff that encourages an exchange of ideas with each child through questions, observations and reactions. There is fluid interaction between teachers and children that gives the children the opportunity to lead and to be led throughout their school day. St. Paul's places primary importance on creating opportunities for children to satisfy their natural curiosity and to find fulfilling outlets through music, art, literature, and fine and gross motor activity through dramatic and other forms of play.
