About St. James Day School
The Day School curriculum includes student-directed and teacher-directed activities to allow teachers to observe and foster the children's interests. All learning activities are adapted to be responsive to all children. We use learning centers, group time, math concepts, art, and music to give each student a balanced education that will prepare them for the future.
Our school offers a theme-based curriculum tailored to the academic needs of each child. Each theme contains music, plays, art, math, cooking, science experiments, books, and songs. Our teachers offer meaningful, child-centered education that focuses on the children's emerging interests.
"We are thrilled with our experience at St. James Day School. We cannot say enough about our childrens' student experiences. The nurturing teachers and staff have created a loving environment that strikes a wonderful balance between academics and play. It has been a real joy to watch their social skills and confidence blossom in their short time there." Erin and Allen Trask, Parents of Nelson (4) and Marian (2)
"I cannot say enough great things about St. James Day School! My children both love their teachers and classmates and every day is a "great day!" The children are challenged with academics and social skills while learning the importance of love and kindness. The staff and parents were extremely open and welcoming to my family. It is like a family. Parents and teachers alike all pitch in daily to make sure every child has an amazing day. The love for the children can be felt as soon as you walk in the classrooms. I am so thankful my children have teachers around them that care about them as much as I do!" Sandy Dombroski, parent of Price (4)
"I was initially skeptical about the benefit of sending our first daughter to 'school' at the early age of two. My wife convinced me, however, and now we will definitely be sharing those benefits with our second daughter as well! The day school isn't a place where someone just watches your child(ren) for several hours. It's a place where the teachers develop budding personalities, engage the students in learning, and truly love them like their own. We continue to be impressed with McKenzie's intellectual and social-emotional developments, which would not have been possible without her exposure to the wonderful day school teachers and her classmate friends." Hunter and Michelle Gray, parents of McKenzie (4) and Brinleigh (1)
