Helping Children Help the Earth through Sustainability in Childcare

What really sets Bartram Academy apart from other St. Johns preschools is our sustainability initiatives. Not only were we awarded several “Green” certifications, we also serve only natural and organic foods. We’ve made a real commitment to going green and leading healthy lifestyles, and see to it that our students do too. Our practices involved in our belief in sustainability in childcare include recycling and using green cleaning products, and we’re cloth diaper friendly too.

We believe sustainability is an integral part of early childhood education and even more important for the future of the earth. Someone who learns recycling and environmental responsibility as a young child is more likely to continue these practices as an adult. The same is true for eating healthy foods. Our Reggio Emilia model curriculum allows us to incorporate these into our day-to-day lessons while meeting the unique needs of each child.

Let your child learn to care for the planet. Contact our St. Johns preschool and we’ll show you how we teach environmental health.
