Mission Statement

We work together.

St. James ELC is a not-for-profit childcare center dedicated to the education and care of young children, located at St. James Catholic Church in Savannah, GA. Our mission is to provide a high quality, developmentally appropriate, play-based program that allows children to engage in meaningful interactions with their peers and caregivers, while providing parents flexible and affordable options for childcare, within our community.





We play together.

Our core belief lies in the fact that children are natural learners, curious seekers of knowledge, and explorers in every sense of the word. They have a voice and an important point of view, which is listened to and respected in the classroom. Children are encouraged to develop positive relationships while engaging in meaningful interactions with their caregivers and peers on a daily basis. We believe that young children learn best when they are given the opportunity to learn in a language rich classroom that offers a variety of learning opportunities through play and hands-on activities.
