Bilingual Preschool @ St. James Campus

Experiences That Enhance School Readiness

What is St. James?

Designed to provide high-quality educational experiences to enhance school readiness for eligible three and four-year-old children. Children are prepared to be successful academically in school and in all five of the developmental domains that are critical to children’s overall well-being and success in reading and math as they enter school.

What is Immersion, dual-language learning?

St. James campus is a five star full day bilingual preschool serving at-risk three and four year old and typically developing children and families. This program will provide a quality learning environment using a Developmentally Appropriate Bi-Lingual Division of Child Development Early Education DCDEE approved curriculum to prepare children for a successful entry into Kindergarten. Since few programs with bilingual children have alone successfully improved Kindergarten readiness and healthy family well-being, we offer a comprehensive full day bilingual preschool that addresses multiple components of any Social Exchange Model: The child, family engagement, and community outreach. The activity aligns with the organization mission statement “Families First in Cabarrus County provides programs for early childhood education, promotes communication through a bilingual early childhood experience and builds strong family-program partnerships to ensure child and family well-being.”
