St. James Child Development Center is a non-profit private childcare in the heart of downtown Portland, Oregon. 

St. James Child Development Center was established in 1981. Our childcare center provides a safe and secure environment for over 120 children ages six weeks through kindergarten. We are committed to providing a fun-filled, rewarding program that balances each child's intellectual, physical, social, creative and emotional needs. 

Children are encouraged to be involved with the environment and learn from it. Teachers work to provide an ever changing and wide variety of activities within this setting. At each age level, themes ignite curiosity and allow children to explore their many talents. They spend their day immersed in a variety of activities that include art, music and movement, science, language, literature, and large and fine motor activities. Through all activities we seek to help the children develop self-confidence, strong academic skills and learn how to work together as a community. 

We are very proud of our program and our teachers. Our goal is to provide an environment that is safe, caring, and full of the wonder of discovery! 

Please take a look at all we have to offer! We look forward to being a part of your child's growth and development!
