About St. James Lutheran School

The purpose of St. James Lutheran Early Childhood program is to serve as a ministry of our congregation.  We will partner with parents as they fulfill their role to nurture their child by providing a quality education for God’s children. We will work together to support all children as they grow spiritually, intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially.

  • Spiritually – knowing, through faith, they are created in God’s image as His forgiven and redeemed children and growing in their faith as they learn about our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
  • Intellectually – by understanding and learning about God’s world through play.
  • Physically – learning to care for their bodies through regular exercise and proper nutrition.
  • Socially – learning to live together as God’s children and being good stewards of His creation.
  • Emotionally – growing in their knowledge and understanding of each person as a beloved child of God, made in His image and saved by His grace and mercy.
