Small steps lead to big strides in the St. James Preschool Turtle classroom, for our youngest children (ages 2 to 3). Free exploration and open-ended activities are the key.

Within this environment, Turtle teachers patiently yet progressively cultivate social development, foster self-control, and initiate basic skill acquisition. Washing hands, taking turns, cleaning up toys, recognizing emotions, imaginary play, care, empathy towards others, and, yes, potty training.

“As a dad, I wasn’t exactly sure what to make of preschool for our two-year-old. What I found was an amazing group of families, all woven together by their children with an abundance of care and love by the teachers. Everyone pitches in, we all have a great time, and the kids clearly love the results!”
