Jacksonville Country Day School, a leading private elementary in Jacksonville, FL, offers a Pre-K 3 program tailored to the needs of individual preschool aged children in a safe, healthy, nurturing, and family-involved setting. Even the lighting of the classrooms, which is soft and non-fluorescent, has been considered to provide an ideal environment for young minds to shine.

Jacksonville Country Day School teachers understand the educational needs of preschool aged children. All Lead Teachers have college degrees, stay current on the latest research, and continue to develop professionally in the field of early childhood education.

The Pre-K 3 curriculum at Jacksonville Country Day School is based on the latest research and insights into how young children learn and develop. All students are supervised in a very caring manner and are gently guided to develop academically, socially, emotionally, and physically.

The Jacksonville Country Day Pre-K 3 program runs five days a week — with several options for length of day, including pick up at noon, 1:30 p.m., 3:00 p.m., and later through our optional extended care and extracurricular programs.

All students applying for our Pre-K 3 program must be 3 years old before September 1st of their entry year.

All students must be fully trained with independent bathroom skills prior to entry in August.
