Providing a safe half-day program for 3 & 4 year old children
Outdoor Learning Environment includes:
natural playground and garden lab.
Springwood Playschool is a nurturing half-day early childhood program serving 3 & 4 year old children.
Our mission is to provide children with a learning environment that is outdoors as much as possible, fun-filled, and loving, in which each child can discover his/her own uniqueness and belovedness, while also learning to function well in a group.
Our program promotes development of the whole child.
We are inclusive and respectful, and we welcome diversity in culture, religion, race, gender, and ability.
We look forward to developing a relationship with your family that offers support to you during these years of early growing and learning.

Our Start-up Director, Lindy Halverson
Lindy earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Speech & Language Pathology from the University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point, and served many years as a speech and language clinician in the early childhood and elementary school setting. When Lindy’s children went to playschool, she transitioned into early childhood work and taught in classrooms for 3- and 4-year-olds. For the past 13 years she served as Director of First Presbyterian Church Playschool in Burlington, and just retired last year. We are delighted that Lindy is sharing her expertise with us as we launch our Playschool.
Our Playschool Staff of experienced and well-trained teachers will nurture children by embodying and teaching the love of Jesus and modeling what it is to be kind, thought-filled, and compassionate. We keep a low teacher-to-student ratio (1:8). Teachers strive to build positive relationships with parents as well as children, and we welcome parental involvement at Playschool.
