Deermeadows Preschool is a great place to learn!

We currently have limited openings for the 2020-2021 school year. 

The Deermeadows Preschool Leadership Team has been diligently planning for the 2020-2021 school year.

We are excited that we welcomed our preschoolers back to campus this week with new procedures and protocols in response to the pandemic. 

Our goal is to make the children's preschool experience as normal as possible while also keeping them safe and minimizing health risks to everyone.  We have comprehensive plans in place to facilitate both of these goals. Please see the COVID Policies and Procedures tab on the left regarding these plans and also answers to frequently asked questions.

Deermeadows Preschool looks forward to teaching and caring for your child.  We are grateful for your trust in us.

Please contact us at 904-645-5882 for more information on enrolling your child at Deermeadows Preschool.


At Deermeadows Preschool, we pride ourselves on providing a rich preschool experience.  Here are just a few of the resources available to you and your family as part of the Deermeadows community:

  • Students at Deermeadows Preschool have a music class and a library visit once a week.
  • Our VPK students have access to our in-house Learning Specialist.  She is an experienced, certified teacher that works with the children privately or semi-privately to provide intentional guidance and rich experiences that build upon individual strengths and talents, moving the child toward Kindergarten readiness.
  • Deermeadows Preschool is fortunate to have our very own Resource/ Enrichment Director. She rotates resources (toys, books, manipulatives, puzzles, etc.) weekly for each teacher based on the teacher’s lesson plans. Your child will always have new materials available to them in their classroom learning centers. 
  • Each week, teachers send home a Peek Sheet which provides an overview of what will be happening in class the next week.  This is a great resource to help you talk with your child about what they are learning at school. In addition, each class has a private Facebook page to build the  classroom community and provide a look into what the children are doing at school. 
  • While currently on hold due to COVID, Deermeadows offers many enrichment activities after school such as Mazza Smith Dance, Team PlayBall, and FALA Spanish Class.
