Learn Through Play
The business of childhood is play. We believe that children, through play with their peers, actively learn to solve their problems, increase their knowledge and skills and express their feelings and ideas.
I want you to know how much we’ve all enjoyed being part of the St. Thomas the Apostle Nursery School family for the past year. Maddie has certainly had a great time, and has had very enriching experiences. It’s wonderful to hear her speak so fondly of her teachers and friends, and to hear her describe with enthusiasm all the fun things she did during the day. The teachers are very caring and responsive. We made a wonderful choice for our little girl! It’s on to Kindergarten for Maddie now, and I think we’re all a little sad to be leaving this wonderful place behind, but I know that she’s prepared for the next adventure ahead!

I just wanted to express my gratitude to you and all the staff for a wonderful year. Carmen had a fun and positive preschool experience. The time, effort, and thoughtfulness that you all bring to the activities at the school is admirable. You show so much dedication and care in your work and it shines through in the smiles and excitement of the kids.

I wanted to share with you that Micah has had a wonderful experience at preschool this year. I want to personally thank you for your directorship, coaching of your team and meticulous operation at St. Thomas. You, Serena and other members of your preschool team have added such value to Micah’s 3-4 yr old growth and development. Andrew and I greatly appreciate you and the program for all that you have done for him.
