We have four classrooms grouped by age, and a large motor classroom (the STAR room). Our classrooms are filled with art created by students. Each classroom is divided into learning centers where the children may choose from a variety of activities designed to extend the child’s awareness and understanding of his/her environment and community. The learning centers include:

Art Center

Block Center

Books/Reading/ Listening Center

Writing Center

Dramatic Play

Science Center

Sensory Table

Cozy Corner/ Safe Place


Circle/Group Center


STAR stands for Stop, Take A Deep Breath and Relax. This classroom is a safe place where children can go to calm their bodies and then get back to the business of learning, because sometimes we need more space for large body movement or sometimes we need more calming quiet space than the regular classroom can offer. The STAR room is a different kind of supportive environment where kids can take a “brain break”.

St. James Preschool will remain closed through April 17 due to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
