All Saints’ Episcopal School in central Austin near the University of Texas campus has announced the addition of an Early Learners two-year-old class, expanding the school’s offerings to children from ages two through kindergarten. The twice a week class will begin with the 2017-2018 school year.
All Saints’ has a focus on the “whole child,” with “play-based learning” and other adaptable approaches, according to its website. The school has a motto of “Strong Minds. Healthy Hearts. Full Spirits.”
In addition to half day and full day classes, depending on age, the school also offers Before School Care, After School Enrichment, and twice weekly chapel. Every age level incorporates music, visual arts, language, movement, social-emotional learning, and community service. “The love of learning instilled here stretches well beyond the time they leave our classrooms,” states its website.
All Saints’ recently celebrated its 70th anniversary and was the first standalone preschool to receive accreditation from the Southwestern Association of Episcopal School and also was the first school to receive the Ken Bastian Award from SAES for outstanding community service.
Board of Trustees Member Liz MacPhail describes the school as having “a solid reputation for social and emotional learning as well as great educational preparation.” She said that many of the students of All Saints’ continue their educations at Trinity Episcopal School and St. Andrews Episcopal School, as well as area public schools.
While spaces at All Saints’ are limited, MacPhail said of any vacancies, “We would love to get these filled with great new families coming to Austin.”
The central Austin campus is gated and on the grounds of All Saints’ Episcopal Church. For more information, visit All Saints’ Episcopal School’s website.
