Welcome to Bartram Academy

Voted Green Business of the Year Award for North Florida, 2013

Let’s Invest in Your Child Together

Your child deserves the best, and our St. Johns preschool, Bartram Academy, is here to help you give them that. Whether you’re looking for someone to care for your children while you work or are simply hoping to give them a head start on learning, we’re the perfect child care provider for you. We offer programs for kids as young as six weeks up to VPK, and camps for children as old as eight. This makes it easy to enroll all of your kids in one place, especially with our sibling discounts. They’ll be learning all kinds of useful and fun things while you have time to work or take a break and relax.

Children with high-quality early childhood education tend to do better socially and have more advanced math and language skills. They’re even more likely to earn higher wages as adults and do better in school. The very early years are when the most important brain development happens, and our eco-friendly child care can make those years count. You’ll feel much better about your children being ready for school after they’ve been cared for by us.

Quality Educational Curriculum All Year Round

Our eco-friendly preschool provides children with a naturalistic learning environment in an open room setting. The curriculum is based on many aspects of the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education. This is most kids’ first time learning to follow instructions and interact with people their own age in a structured environment. It serves to prepare them for elementary school and make the transition less overwhelming and scary. They even have the opportunity to make friends, which is important for self-esteem and social growth.

This is truly invaluable for busy families, as it gives parents time to work or take a break and kids the opportunity to play with others their own age while learning. We offer these opportunities every weekday, from morning to early evening. You can even rely on us when your older kids are out of school. We offer camps during spring break and winter break for kids up to eight years old, and full summer sessions too. Check out our blog and website for information about these and other events.

Your Kids Will Stay Safe and Go Green

Even more essential than learning and fun playtime is the safety of your child. At our school, we make that our top priority and encourage parents to tour our facilities and ask questions. Our eco-friendly daycare received a 100% rating on state inspections and every staff member is CPR certified.

We also received the Green Business of the Year Award in 2013 because we believe in sustainability in childcare and want the next generation to take it seriously as well. Our staff members take pride in teaching children how to live a lifestyle that is not only healthy for them, but for the earth and future generations too. Some of the ways we stay eco-friendly include:

  • Being Cloth Diaper Friendly
  • Using Green Cleaning Products
  • Using Recycled Materials for Crafting
  • Recycling Paper, Plastics, and Cardboard

We look forward to learning and playing with your kids. Contact our St. Johns preschool to see all we have to offer your family.
