St. James Preschool along with the Catholic Schools of the Archdiocese of Atlanta is committed to providing a healthy and safe environment for our preschool students.  We are developing guidelines and protocols to minimize the risk and spread of COVID-19 exposure.  Preventative measures will be in place(such as regular handwashing training and reminders, social distancing, disinfection along with continual and regimented environmental cleaning) to help lower the risk of COVID-19 exposure and spread during school sessions.  


We are an outreach ministry of St. James the Apostle Catholic Church and a non-profit preschool program. 
We believe in fostering the development of each child by offering a nurturing and creative learning environment.
Children that graduate from St. James Preschool are not only prepared to move on to upper grades, they have grown spiritually, emotionally and physically too.
Our school offers programs for children ages 12 months to 5 years old.

Our preschool is one of the only schools in our county to offer a S.T.R.E.A.M. curriculum. Our Top Ten Goals of STREAM.

St. James Preschool staff are highly qualified teachers with many years of experience.  The staff is dedicated to serving the needs of the young children of the parish and community.
It is our belief that we are in partnership with our parents as our children begin their education, social and developmental growth as well as their spiritual growth.

The St. James Preschool programs strive to promote good Christian values that form the foundation of our Catholic faith and reflect the love of Christ.
