Our teachers are trained in a combination of five curriculum resources.
Our World of Learning, Learn Everyday, and Passports are state-approved curriculums that address the developmental domains of preschool children. These curriculums are designed to work hand-in-hand with Foundations: Early Learning Standards for North Carolina Preschoolers and Strategies for Guiding Their Success. Foundations is a collaborative effort between the Department of Public Instruction and the Division of Child Development and Early Education.
The Creative Curriculum approach balances both teacher-directed and child-initiated learning that fosters a child's development within the four developmental domains: social/emotional, physical, cognitive, and language, while the Letter People is an interactive literacy program designed to encourage letter recognition, decoding sounds and pre-reading skills.
At School for Little Folks, we take pride in our strong academic reputation. We are dedicated to providing a school-like experience for your child. Our goal is to make sure that your child is prepared for their "Big School" experience when the time comes.
"One of many features that stands out to me is the family atmosphere. The staff and teachers create an environment of kindness, respect and caring towards others. My child has learned sign language, self help skills, and friendship. She also counts very well. I would most definitely recommend this school to families after my experience. I have seen huge differences in all three of my children after attending St. James School for Little Folks. This school is a huge blessing!"
Our preschool education programs consist of meeting Social, Emotional, Academic, and Christian goals with each of our students. As part of our curriculum, we have a short 15-30 minute church service weekly lead by the Rector or Assistant Rector. This service is developmentally appropriate for children 2.5 to 5 years old. This chapel time includes singing and celebrating life and love. It focuses on good Christian values and morals taught through Bible stories and corresponding activities.
