Nurturing and Educating Young Children for Over 30 Years

St. James’ Children’s School is a Christian school owned and operated by St. James’ Episcopal Church. We have been nurturing and educating infants through Kindergarten since 1993.

St. James’ Children’s School is a Maryland EXCELS quality rating Level 3 School, as rated by the Maryland Department of Education (MSDE.) Our school has achieved this quality rating based on nationally recognized standards and best practices that exceed state licensing requirements. We offer a full day, year round program for children six weeks through five years of age, that encourages every child’s growth in an atmosphere of love and respect.


We have a large Infant and Toddler program that can accommodate up to 24 children in three separate classrooms. We separate our older and younger infants to better focus on infant needs at both the youngest and older more mobile stages. Our preschool program includes separate classes for our Twos and Threes to focus on the important Social Emotional Learning skills unique to each of these age groups.

We have two Pre-K classes divided by age. Our Younger Pre-K class serves children who have just turned four in the spring and summer and those still turning four in the fall. Our older Pre-K Class serves those children that will be turning five in the fall and winter, and is also a combined age group with a fully approved Kindergarten program. This group allows some kindergarten-eligible students to experience a smaller more personalized class before moving on to first grade.

Our commitment is to serve the community by providing a superior educational opportunity within a high quality, loving childcare environment. Our program is designed to prepare children socially and academically for kindergarten and beyond.

We encourage prospective families to call us directly for more details about our school, available openings, and admission procedures. We also invite families to take a personal tour of our school. Please call or email us to schedule a time convenient for you.
