Our curriculums are play-based and theme-based. Each teacher tailors their curriculum to the age and abilities of the children in their classroom. The younger children will focus on simpler themes and work on beginning concepts, such as shapes and colors. The older children will explore themes based around the letters they are learning as they focus more on language and literacy. The children will continue to build upon their skills year after year and leave our program ready to succeed in kindergarten.

St. James Preschool has been a wonderful part of my kids’ childhoods and education. The teachers and staff are so caring and nurturing that it has become a second family. They truly understand the importance of play in learning and are able to prepare kids for elementary school through enriching and fun lessons. I also really appreciate all the extra activities the preschool does to bring families together like field trips to the farm, holiday parties and end of the year pot luck luncheon. My kids are lucky to have such a great preschool that creates so many lasting memories.
