We are frequently asked about early childhood programs and recommendations for child care, preschools, and schools around St. Augustine. As parents ourselves, we understand that picking a school or child care center that fits your child’s and your family’s needs can be an overwhelming task. No one should have to start this type of research on their own, so we’ve done a little bit of the hard work for you. St. Augustine Moms is excited to share our guide to local child care centers, preschools and schools around St. Augustine and the rest of St. Johns County!

If you have any questions about specific schools we encourage you to ask moms in our neighborhood group about their thoughts and experiences. Good luck on this new adventure!

Memorial Lutheran Chapel School

Play-based, child-centered, grounded in research and centered in LOVE — Chapel School features active learning at its core. In our HighScope classrooms, children are guided to explore, interact, and exercise their creative imagination through purposeful play. Well-prepared teachers support and extend each child’s learning based on their developmental levels, so children enter school ready and eager to learn. Daily Chapel Time opens up God’s Word to kids through colorful art and the rich retellings of Bible stories from the Old and New Testament. Parents and extended families are encouraged to join us for Chapel Time virtually from anywhere!

Island Prep Non-Profit Elementary School strives to achieve what parents want for the future of their children. Our educational values align with our families’ values.  Our teaching methodologies through experience and hands-on learning rather than rote memorization allows the students to challenge themselves as scientists, mathematicians, and linguists, examining all possibilities before coming to their own conclusions. Our classes promote lifelong independence, and social skills and encourage creativity and discovery.
