At St. James Preschool, our child-centered
curriculum lays the foundation of social/life skills, language development,
early math concepts, thinking skills and pre-reading skills. It builds upon concepts learned from
previous years so that by Pre-K, children are completing their mastery of ABCs,
shapes, colors, and numbers in preparation for kindergarten.
Children learn and explore through
self-discovery, teacher directed activities and active involvement. Daily activities include: Circle Time, Free
Play, Art Exploration, Learning Activities or Centers, Story and Puzzle Time,
Snack Time and Outdoor Play.
We help to cultivate a child’s awareness
of self and a respect for people and the world around him/her. We prepare children for learning in school
through encouragement, cooperative play, sharing and caring.
We encourage your child’s natural curiosity and creative expression through the use of art projects, music and
movement, and imaginative play.

aware, the program guide for the year is very general, and like most monthly
calendars the teachers will be giving out, is always subject to change due to
anything and everything! One of the
luxuries we have as preschool teachers is to take advantage of all learning
opportunities as they happen instead of when they are planned to happen. We hope you will understand our need for
flexibility as we strive to meet the social, emotional, and educational needs
of your child.
