About Us

  • Celebrating Your Child's Heart Our Mission

    It is our desire to provide a developmentally based, literacy focused, educational environment for the children, regardless of family or religious background.

    We wish to encourage positive social and emotional development in an environment that incorporates Christian values.

    Using an approach that focuses on the whole child, we wish to enrich all our students both intellectually as well as physically.

    By creating a fun and exciting early educational experience, we hope to foster in our students a sense of healthy curiosity and a life-long desire to learn.

  • Learning Through Play Our Curriculum

    For over 20 years, we have tailored our research based curriculum to meet the social, physical and emotional needs of each age group.  

    The primary goal of our play based curriculum is to foster the development of social and emotional skills using hands-on activities that promote learning in many different pre-academic areas.  

    From the moment they enter the classrooms, children are immersed in a print-rich environment that helps with early literacy concepts and pre-reading skills like listening and responding, vocabulary and comprehension, and linking spoken language to written word.

    We encourage activities that focus on key developmental areas such as hand-eye coordination and fine motor skill enhancement. 

    Early math concepts such as counting and memorizing are expanded through opportunities for patterning, sequencing, sizing, and measuring.  

    Weekly Music class focuses on rhythm, movement and auditory discrimination; while Monkeynastix fitness class encourages large muscle coordination, balance, and spatial awareness.

  • A Non-Profit Ministry of Highlands United Presbyterian Church

    You'll find us nestled among the trees on the campus of Highlands United Presbyterian Church. Our long-standing relationship with HUPC means that preschool is not just an environment for your child—it's a welcoming place for your entire family. While we serve families from a variety of religious backgrounds who worship at various locations across the city of Jacksonville, we value the opportunity to connect interested families with our loving church community.
