A half-day program for 3 & 4 year old children
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 safe, fun-filled, and loving in which each child can develop a sense of his/her own uniqueness and belovedness, while also learning to function well in a group. Our goal is that children develop a life-long love for God and others, as well as a life-long love of learning. Our program promotes development of the whole child: physical, social, emotional, intellectual, creative and spiritual. 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 Playschool Program
A wide range of activities are available that are developmentally appropriate, child-centered, teacher directed and designed to make every child feel successful! We believe that children learn best through play-based activities which include a balance of structure and free choice. Classroom routines include active involvement, meaningful exploration and reinforcement through repetition. Curriculum is developed based on the needs and interests of the children.
Social skill development is a fundamental objective in early childhood education. Sharing, peer interactions, taking turns and solving conflicts are taught and modeled in a play-based, educationally rich environment. Our curriculum is designed to stimulate creativity and curiosity, strengthen fine and gross motor skills, encourage children to try new skills, and delight in the knowledge that they are loved by God.
Pre-reading, pre-math, and pre-writing skills are incorporated in hands-on learning activities. All of the above provide a foundation for the necessary skills for successful entrance to kindergarten and later life relationships.
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 nurture children by embodying and teaching the love of Jesus. They model 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.
