St. James’ Children’s School currently has spaces for young Twos full time and Preschool Threes and Fours part time only. For September enrollment, we still have full time spaces available in our Preschool Twos and PreK, and part time in Threes and Fours classes.

For all other classes we are taking applications for the waiting list. Please call or email the school to inquire about these openings, to come in for a tour, or to get on the waiting list.

We are currently hiring part-time aides for the afternoon schedule. Proof of full COVID-19 vaccination is required for all staff. Please call or email the school to inquire.


Nurturing and Educating Young Children for Over 28 Years

St. James’ Children’s School is a Christian school owned 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, a preschool program with individual classes for Twos, Threes and Fours, plus a Pre-Kindergarten class.

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.
