My name is Michelle Lee, and I have been a parent of St Andrew’s for 6 years. Both my daughters started at St Andrew’s Preschool when they were just 6 months old. At the time, people would ask me, “Are you not concerned about sending them to school so young?” Having attended St Andrew’s myself, I knew without a doubt that they were in good hands, and that it would be the beginning of an amazing adventure for my children. Through the years, I have witnessed my girls’ transformation and how they have been shaped and encouraged to be independent and confident individuals. It is so important that we provide an environment in which our children are able to to be themselves with the freedom to be who they want to be. Every child can become extraordinary! The teachers of St Andrew’s Preschool are nurturing and loving, and they provide the structure and guidance that our children need. I see the excitement in my girls’ eyes when they’re off to school in the mornings. Their faces light up knowing that they are going to their happy place. This is testament that we, as parents, have made the right decision. St Andrew’s instils its values of Balance, Integrity, Grace, Community, Accountability and Trust, in our children – values that each child will carry with them for life. “There are two gifts we should give our children; one is roots, and the other is wings”. Nothing is more comforting to know that St Andrew’s Preschool is the first step in our children’s journey towards being ‘Skilled for Life’.
