Providing a safe half-day program
for 3 & 4 year old children
Outdoor Learning Environment 
with natural playground, garden lab, and outdoor classrooms. 

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 curriculum is designed to encourage children to try new skills, delight in God’s creation, and know that they are loved by God.

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.
