Our Approach

At Spring Hill Preschool we provide developmentally appropriate learning experiences for children via purposeful, intentional, and inviting curriculum. Our low 7:1 student to teacher ratio ensures that each child receives plenty of individualized attention.

Our play-based philosophy allows the children’s curiosities to guide our curriculum by observing their interests and implementing a number of activities including math, science, art, and literacy based on those interests. We provide opportunities for children to learn in both small and large group settings while encouraging the development of community. Our classroom also honors diversity by inviting students to share their family traditions and backgrounds with their peers. We aim to inspire our youngest learners with success and confidence as they begin their educational journey. 

Enrichments

Spanish

We have a wonderful Spanish teacher on campus who visits our classroom twice a week. She introduces language through play, music, and literacy with the children.

Music

The children also get to visit our amazing music teacher twice a week. She incorporates the foundations of sound and rhythm while providing the children an opportunity to advance their gross motor development through play.

Life Lab

We have an awesome garden with lots of land to explore where we get to plant our own food.  We grow our own salads, greens and herbs, then wash it, and eat it right there in the garden together!

Library

The children get to visit the library once a week and select a book to check out and bring home.  Our lovely librarian pre-selects books that she thinks they will enjoy and offers other choices tailored to specific interests.

 

Tumbling Tutor

This is an optional after-school activity offered once a week for an additional fee.  Barry from Tumbling Tutor comes to our school with all his equipment and teaches gymnastics to the children through play.
