The St. James Catholic School on Whitfield Ave. is opening an Early Learning Center, a brand new three year old classroom for the 2011-2012 school year. The school now has a a toddler room, for children starting at 18 months, and a ‘tweens’ room, which will be for older twos and little threes still potty training, as well as a Big 3's room, for all threes who are potty trained completely.
The registration fee is $150.00 and packets are available from the church school or by calling Miss Wendy at 912-629-2430 for a tour.
St. James believes that young children learn best when they are given the opportunity to learn in a language rich classroom that offers a variety of learning opportunities through play and hand-on activities. Young children are very interested in a variety of learning experiences and they enjoy using all five senses to explore their environment. This approach to learning fosters creative thinking and problem-solving skills in a non-biased, non-competitive, developmentally appropriate way. We believe that the culture of family and community play an enormously important role in each child's learning process. The school encourages the participation of family members in all its programs, working hand-in-hand to raise children.
