Pre-K Program

Pre-Kindergarten children leave St. James’ Preschool fully prepared for kindergarten.  Our Pre-K class will have no more than 10 children, which ensures that each child receives plenty of individual attention while working on such important skills. Pre-K children experience the Itty Bitty Bookworm curriculum in their classroom, where they focus on one book a week and complete activities in language development, mathematics, science, cooking, art and more to complement the literature. These students are encouraged to participate in more writing and pre-reading activities while still maintaining our work-through-play philosophy.

Pre-K students continue to develop their social skills by teacher encouragement to work together on solving problems. Our Pre-K children work this year on independence and creativity in the classroom to prepare them for kindergarten.  Children enrolled in Pre-K will graduate from St. James’ Preschool will an appreciation of themselves and others, a wealth of pre-reading skills and a love of learning.
