About Us

The Children’s School at Saint John’s was founded to provide developmentally appropriate programs to foster the development of children ages three months through six years from the families of Saint Joseph’s University, The Church of Saint John Lower Merion, and the community at large. We believe in the value and uniqueness of each child we serve. Our curriculum is designed to foster the social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual and physical needs of the children we serve, and is based on the belief that young children need to be actively involved in learning through play and opportunities to explore,
experience and succeed, as well as on widely accepted theories and principles of child growth and development.

Our goal is to help young children play and learn by providing an enriching environment and a caring staff that encourages each child’s curiosity, creativity, and self-confidence.

The Children’s School at Saint John’s is state licensed by both The Department of Public Welfare and The Department of Education, and welcomes children of all races, colors, creeds, nationalities, and ethnic origins. The school received recognition for excellence and is accreditated from The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) as well as obtaining a highest rating of  four-stars  with the Keystone STARS initiative for quality care.
