The right school and curriculum can teach your child to question, learn, and encourage for the rest of his or her life. Bartram Academy specializes in early childhood education in Jacksonville, FL.

We encourage you to schedule an appointment with us to tour our space. Often, parents are able to relieve any concerns once they see our school on a regular day where current students are in the middle of a lesson. You can see for yourself that we make use of a developmentally appropriate playground and classroom environment.

Early Childhood Education Uses Reggio Emilia Schooling

Encourage your child to grow and develop into an inquisitive person with the skills to question the world. Our early childhood education center uses a highly esteemed method of schooling called the Reggio Emilia approach. This method focuses on a teacher being encouraging to every student in their learning. Lessons are centered on each child's interests. Overall, we reward natural curiosity. We use open spaces, designed to be like piazzas in Italy, to observe students and encourage them to play in a way that is natural and focuses on interests.

Don't just drop off your child and pick him up at the end of the day without understanding what goes on beyond our doors. Without causing disruption in your routine, we make sure your child brings home a finished project on a regular basis so she can share this important part of her life with you. While the artwork we make in our early education program won't ever hang in the Louvre, it will hang on the family refrigerator which is the Louvre of the home.

Early Education Center Built to Foster and Nurture

Aside from our commitment to each child we care for, our team is also dedicated to making our world a better place for future generations. We strive to instill the basic principles of being environmentally conscious into the children we look after. A part of your child's time at our early education center will include an emphasis on things like gardening, eating well, and recycling. For example, our outdoor space has a garden for flowers and vegetables. This way, your child learns from tactile methods not just reading about plants growing in a book.

Early Childhood Education in Jacksonville, FL

At Bartram Academy, children start learning long before their first days of kindergarten and first grade. We have programs for infants, toddlers, 3-year-olds, and 4-year-olds during the school year, and during spring and summer break, we help them get ahead of the game when they attend elementary school. Students receive some of the best early childhood education in Jacksonville, FL, at our center while being well cared for and fed healthy foods. Quality care and education are one of the most rewarding investments any parents can make in their child.

It isn’t just us saying that either. Numerous studies show the benefits of childhood education starting younger. The time between ages 2 and 5 is when kids learn the most and need the most mental stimulation. You’d be surprised how many skills our school can teach them in a relatively short time. Enrolling them now means that by the time they’re 5 or 6, they’ll be used to a fully structured day and can adjust to the transition easily.  

The Many Benefits of an Early Education Program

What we teach your child goes far beyond elementary school. Kids who start their education early perform better academically, are more likely to graduate and own homes, and earn higher salaries with greater levels of employment. They have a lower chance of delinquency, repeating grades, needing special education, and ending up in a teen pregnancy. We give them a well-rounded curriculum that encourages them to be curious and question so that they continue learning all their lives.

At our early childhood education center, no one is too young to expand their knowledge. We ensure all of our students have fun, are safe and healthy, and are gaining the skills they need to be successful their whole lives. Don’t waste this precious time--enroll your child in our early education center today.
