Find Your Village at St. Andrew's by-the-Sea!

Create. Explore. Imagine. 

These are just a few of the skills and qualities that children develop at our

Children's Center at St. Andrew's by-the-Sea. 

We focus on supporting parents and caregivers and the developmental benchmarks of children, ages newborn to five years.


 Our unique programs at St. Andrew's by-the-Sea offer various activities that are specifically designed to encourage each child’s growth. Through cooperative play and creative activities, kids reach their social, emotional and physical milestones naturally and with ease.
