Both of our daughters attended preschool at St. James. It was a wonderful experience for them as well as us. Ms. April and her staff are very caring, wonderful, dedicated teachers who want to ensure the children are comfortable, happy and learning. Both of our daughters were more than prepared for elementary school. Our oldest daughter is in the gifted program and our youngest has been referred for testing. We highly recommend this preschool!

This is by far the best Preschool in Tempe. Small class sizes with a lot of individualized attention. Excellent teacher who truly understand how your child develops. Both of my daughters attended preschool here are thriving in elementary school thanks to the solid foundation and attention given by the St James Staff. St James Preschool is the best kept secret!!
