Melrose Avenue Preschool

4305 Melrose Avenue, Jacksonville, FL 32210, United States
Melrose Avenue Preschool is a non-traditional program for ages 18 months – 5 years.  We’re inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach and Waldorf Education.  Our classrooms are designed and created by adults to give children the maximum learning opportunities through play and discovery.  We feel that children should be able to enjoy their short span of life called childhood.  Our unique curriculum approach allows children to experience numbers and literacy without the need for flash cards and worksheets.  Reggio Emilia is a philosophy from 1940’s Italy that uses the arts to expand children’s knowledge of the world around them.  Waldorf Education is more a way of life than a curriculum.  Embracing Waldorf means our classrooms are an extension of home; comfortable furnishings, pillows, natural wood and the wonders of “loose parts” for creative play.  We are in the process of creating a “Kindergarten Alternative” for children that need one more year of exploring before entering the world of big school.
We are a mother-daughter team committed to exploring new ideas for Early Childhood in the Jacksonville community.  Our students come from the Northside/Yulee, Beaches, Orange Park and Mandarin; as well as the nearby Avondale/Ortega area.
