About Us

About The Preschool in San Marco

The Preschool in San Marco opened as a ministry of Southside Baptist Church in August 2021.  The program was formerly located at South Jacksonville Presbyterian Church, where it served the San Marco Community for over 70 years.  We proudly enroll children whose parents and grandparents once attended our school!

Mission Statement

The Preschool in San Marco, in partnership with the Southside Baptist Church, seeks to provide a safe and loving environment that fosters age-appropriate academic, physical, spiritual, emotional, and social development in each child.  With the mutual cooperation of parents, teachers, and church staff, pupils will develop personal responsibility and respect for themselves and others, forging stronger relationships with peers, adult staff, and family.
