The Early Childhood Development program at St. James is a recent addition to our offerings. Although we’ve provided high-quality, faith-based education for nearly seven decades, this program is specifically designed for our youngest community members and focused on developmental milestones appropriate for 18 months – 3 years.

“The Pelican’s Nest is a great place to start your St. James education as it provides a wonderful foundation of pre-academic skills. Using purposeful play and meaningful exploration, our Nest students learn to be curious and inquisitive. Our unique campus gives us the opportunity to have learning spaces geared specifically to our early childhood students that focus on age-appropriate, student-centered learning. These dynamics allow students to deepen their social and emotional development and contribute to a safe, joyful, and engaging classroom.

Our new facility in downtown Baton Rouge combines convenience and history with an amazing environment suitable for these young students.
