St. James Preschool is rooted in the Catholic faith. Emphasis is placed upon: experiencing a deepening sense of wonder and awe by exploring the beauty of creation, and by recognizing our special qualities and the importance of God's creation; projecting a deepened sense of the importance of prayer and celebration; fostering an awareness of God, values, others and spiritual development; providing experiences for treating others with respect and being treated with respect; and developing a reverence for Sacred Scripture.
