St. matthew's Day School

Laying a Foundation for Learning

Founded in 1973, St. Matthew’s Day School provides a high quality, developmentally appropriate learning experience for children from 3 to 5 years of age. 

Our Program


St. Matthew’s Day School seeks to lay a foundation for a child’s success in a complex and changing world by inspiring an enthusiasm for learning and an awareness of the unique value of each person as a child of God.

Founded in 1973, the Day School is a ministry of St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church and offers its program to all regardless of race, gender, creed or national origin.

Learning Through Play

The child’s curiosity and natural motivation to learn is stimulated through
daily opportunities for:

  • imaginative play indoors and out,
  • creative arts,
  • structured and spontaneous music and movement,
  • active involvement with science, math, literature and literacy,
  •  regular walk-abouts and field trips.

Children acquire new skills through teacher-led and child-initiated experiences.
