Early Care & Education Multi-Age Program

Families can enroll children into our Early Care & Education (ECE) program at 2 years 9 months. Our caring staff is focused on getting students kindergarten-ready in safe and nurturing play-based atmosphere. Our students in ECE participate in enrichment programs such as Spanish, Physical Education, Special Library Time, Music, and Technology with teachers from St. James School. This experience allows children to have time engaged in activities, and to learn, play, grow and become comfortable with the school setting. The Early Childhood Education program at St. James School offers a year-round education program for 3 and 4-year-old children. We have both full and part-time options.
