About our school
Founded in 1963, Westminster Day School has been providing quality education for pre-school children for 60 years. Westminster Day School is a Christian pre-school for children 6 months through 4K. It is the mission of the school to help every child develop an understanding of God's love while providing a quality early childhood education in a developmentally appropriate, Christian environment.
Here at WDS, we put purposeful play at the heart of our curriculum, encouraging active participation in the learning process. We believe in the importance of developing partnerships and relationships with our families, faculty, and community to build and enhance each child's positive sense of self. Our team approach supports each child as an active learner by providing hand on experiences and opportunities for discovery, creativity, collaboration, problem solving, and explorations.
Children in our 3 year old and 4 year old classes follow a full curriculum which is aligned with the South Carolina State Curriculum Standards and NAEYC Guidlines. Our curriculum is rich in early literacy skills and language development and infuses math and science concepts through every day activities. Our children are given experiences that foster and nurture self-confidence, self-esteem, relationships with others, and a growing knowledge of Christ. In addition, we offer chapel, art, music, science and fitness classes along with opportunities to learn through field trips and visits from people in our community.
Our infant, toddler and 2 year old classes provide children with a warm and friendly environment that uses enriching, concrete, hands-on activities to encourage early learning. The WDS curriculum provides interactive activities that enable children to develop a love of learning while they are playing and having fun.
WDS focuses on the child as the curriculum by incorporating the principles of active, independent and child-directed learning into our planning.
