Letters will be mailed by January 14, 2022 to all families who submitted registration applications and appropriate fees.  Parents of children placed on the wait list will be notified of openings as they occur.

All students enrolling at St. James Preschool are required to make a non-refundable $350 tuition deposit payment no later than the latter of March 15, 2022 or within ten (10) days of receipt of notification of acceptance.

Emergency Information

PROCEDURES FOR MEDICAL EMERGENCIES

In case of a severe injury or illness, the director, assistant director or classroom teacher will first call the Fulton County Emergency Medical Squad (911) and then call the parents. If the parents or an emergency contact are unavailable, the director or assistant director will follow the emergency vehicle to Scottish Rite Hospital (1001 Johnson Ferry Rd.)

If the injury does not warrant a call to 911, but does require immediate medical attention (and the parent or emergency contact person cannot be reached), two staff members will transport the child to Scottish Rite Hospital.

All minor injuries will be handled in house. In the case of minor illness, the parents (guardian) or emergency contact will immediately be called. If no one can be contacted, the child will remain in the director’s office until school is over or until a parent or emergency contact is reached.

PERSONS WHO MAY BE CALLED IN AN EMERGENCY IF PARENTS CANNOT BE REACHED:

Waiver of Liability

Waiver of Liability

Step 1 of 2
It is understood that St. James Preschool will make every effort to prevent accidents, but in the case of an accident, neither the Preschool nor St. James United Methodist Church will be held liable. It is mutually understood that in the event of an accident or illness of my child while in the care of St. James Preschool, the staff shall use their best efforts to contact the parents. In the event the parent is not immediately available, however, the staff is authorized to secure such medical care as the situation may reasonably warrant. It is agreed that where the school has acted in good faith to comply with an accident/illness of my child, any and all liability as might exist, is expressly waived by the parent.

Trusted And Loved By Atlanta’s Parents

As a former elementary school assistant principal and teacher, it was important for me to find a preschool for my own child that had an enriching curriculum and a nurturing community. When we found St. James, we feel like we hit the jack pot! The school has a close-knit feel; the director knows the name of EVERY student. And for the academics, the research-based phonics and handwriting instruction ensures high levels of learning for all students.

Pam Padak

Our family has been at St James Preschool for many years, and it has been such an incredible experience for our children and for us as parents. We’ve watched our kids fall in love with learning and develop what will no doubt be lifelong friendships. Throughout their time at the preschool, our children have been surrounded by teachers and staff who put so much effort in getting to know and care for each child who walks through the doors. St James Preschool will forever hold a special place in our hearts!

Ryan & Melissa Briley

The moment we walked through St. James we knew that this was the school for our girls. Having just moved to the Atlanta, St. James gave us the sense of community that we needed. We are now going on year 4, and at the end of each year we are so happy to know that it was not yet our last. We love everything about St. James - the staff, the curriculum, the beautiful playground, the welcoming classrooms, and the families. St. James is truly wonderful! 

Danielle Nolte

St. James Preschool is more than just a school, it’s a community filled with love and compassion for growing our children! This is seen through the simple yet intentional acts of each teacher and staff, starting from knowing all kids’ names during carpool to genuinely investing in your family (even after they graduate from the school!) Each year as we progress into a different class, I think to myself this can’t top last year and then somehow it does. We truly feel blessed to have the teachers, staff, and other families at St. James as part of our extended family and know they are all having a positive impact on our children.
