Our staff is what makes Deermeadows  Preschool one of the premier preschools in Jacksonville. They provide a loving, supportive, safe and educational atmosphere.  All of our preschool teachers are experienced and certified in Early Childhood Education and average about 15 years of continuous employment with our program! Our current staff longevity adds up to a whopping 298 years of teaching! Knowing that the same teachers are reliably there for your children makes the difference toward a successful education experience. Our teachers really get to know their students and the children feel safe and secure knowing that their teachers are there for them day after day, year after year. That makes for a very comforting and secure transition to preschool for the whole family.
