Trusted And Loved By Atlanta’s Parents

Our children have been coming to SJP since our youngest was in the young 2's class. I didn't realize then what a jackpot we had hit when we got that spot! We have fallen in love with this school...the teachers, staff and entire community. It is truly a place where love and kindness are at the forefront of the daily learning process. My children come home brimming with enthusiasm from all that they have experienced at school and it is such a blessing for them to be surrounded by this amazing environment.

I can't say enough about how pleased we are with the program at St. James.  Each teacher my son has had has been just as amazing as the last, the staff really does care about their students and the school is the perfect environment for young children feel secure and confident while they thrive.  We are so grateful for the education he is receiving.

St. James  Preschool is a very special place to our family. My daughter began here six years ago and by the time my fourth child finishes preschool, we will have been at St. James for 12 consecutive years. The play-based curriculum in combination with the experienced teachers have resulted in very successful transitions to elementary school for my two oldest. We love it so much that we have joined the church- St. James is our family and we cherish our children's preschool years here! 

Meredith Seelos

As a mom of three children who have attended St. James Preschool, I have repeatedly experienced the warm, encouraging atmosphere it provides. Each of our children have blossomed under the loving care of their teachers here, and though our oldest two have moved on, my husband and I continue to see our third nurtured and loved in the same way.

Carrie Fischer

Over the last 3 years attending St James Preschool, our family has form relationships and connections that will last a lifetime. St James Preschool has proven for us to be a fun, safe, spiritual and creative place for young minds. Our kids don't walk in to school each day, they run happily. Its a great place for little ones to be  socialized or prepping our "big kids' for kindergarten. We love our St James family!
