Our Calendar Year

St. James’ Children’s School is a full day and year round program designed to serve working parents in our area. We close for one week at Christmas, Good Friday, and Federal Holidays, but otherwise we do not follow the Montgomery County Public School schedule. We close for two staff In-Service days: the first Friday in May for the State Child Care Conference, and the Friday before Labor Day to clean and prepare for the new school year.

Hours of Operation: Monday – Friday, 7:30 AM – 6:30 PM
