These years, from birth to three, are recognized as critical in fostering life-long learning and in supporting children capable of mastering language, literacy and relationships. Our curriculum reflects the needs of the whole child; that is the social, emotional, cognitive, physical, and spiritual development of each child.
We teach to both the typical developmental level of each age group and to the individual developmental level of each child. We believe that development is influenced by relationships between home and school and that the health of each child, cultural influences in the home, and beliefs about education within our community all influence a child's learning. We strive to reflect the diversity of our students by valuing differences of language, beliefs, and culture within our classrooms and inviting our community to share resources. St. James is committed to supporting each child's spiritual development.
We honor values of patience, respect, tolerance and understanding. As an Episcopal school, we support all children, regardless of ability, origin or religion. An education at St. James is a time for each child to be embraced as an individual and valued as a contributing important member of our family.
