Welcome to St. James Nursery School
Since 1982, children have been laughing, learning, caring and sharing at St. James Nursery School. The children are taught and cared for by a dedicated and loving staff in a safe, secure environment. We would be happy to take you on a tour of our facilities and show you what makes St. James so special.

*Dedicated, experienced teachers
*Learning through play and social interaction in a developmentally appropriate program
*Our focus is on your preschool child and his/her need for hands-on learning
