If you peek inside our little school and catch a glimpse of what a typical day looks like, you will see happy children playing, working, and learning together. You might see a group building with blocks, or designing patterns with magnets, or rolling and pounding playdough. Children may be playing dress up with baby dolls, making patterns with river rocks! You might catch them singing songs, dancing with scarves, or playing rhythm instruments during the day, too! You will see pouring, stirring, measuring, splashing, washing, riding, climbing, hanging out under trees, and lots of laughing with friends. But above all, you will notice the many meaningful interactions and the important bonds made between children and their teachers.
There’s always something to explore when you enter our classrooms. Some children like to paint, or learn to cut with scissors, or create important little treasures out of red clay. Others enjoy the quiet time sitting on the floor with a great book. All are interested in exploring nature as they walk, or ride their buggies, around the campus. You might see them making collages, talking about stuff that kids talk about, making silly rhymes together, counting random things, telling stories, helping each other, loving each other, and using their imagination!
At St. James ELC, we are proud to offer young children a strong and magical start in a lifetime of education.
Come…take a peek inside and you will see!
