Early Explorers – Our Preschool in Jacksonville, Fla.
San Jose Episcopal Day School Leading the Way Among Preschools in Jacksonville, Fla. – Pre-K3 and Pre-K4
In preschool young children develop socially, emotionally, physically, creatively, and intellectually. The classroom environment at our preschool in Jacksonville, Fla. allows our students to investigate their world while learning skills in language arts, math, social studies, and science. Preschool students participate in music, Spanish, library and physical education resources. Religious education, Kingdom Theatre, and character education are interwoven throughout the day with songs and prayers, as is technology.
After preschool, young children become naturally more curious and eager to investigate their environment. Our goal is to provide a stimulating, positive, and secure environment in which the children’s natural enthusiasm for solving problems, gaining new insights and refining concepts will be fostered. Our overall program, especially small group centers, encourages children to think and work independently and engage in tasks that motivate as well as challenge.
Within the curriculum the children engage in direct experiences with opportunities to review, reflect, and discuss what they’ve learned. The content areas of language arts, math, science, social studies, music, and art are incorporated into whole group and center activities. Students also participate in music, Spanish, library, Kingdom Theatre and physical education resources.
A.S.A. P. (Always say a prayer): The cornerstone of our Jacksonville private school program is built on Christian values. Morning Prayer and the pledge begin each day. A blessing always precedes lunch time and special celebrations. Class rules promote kindness and respect and are posted in the classroom and referred to often. Our weekly chapel service teaches the children the power of God’s love through lessons, songs, and scripture.
