The mission of our program is to provide quality, loving,
licensed childcare and preschool education for infants through five year-olds
as a nonprofit service to local families
We provide a carefully planned, stimulating play-based program for the cognitive, physical, social and emotional development of young children in a safe, clean, and nurturing environment so that they are thoroughly equipped for kindergarten and beyond. Our teachers, directors, and families work together to create a supportive community in which our children learn and thrive.
The play-based curriculum at Rock Spring consists of three components: a formal curriculum called the Creative Curriculum, thematic units, and learning through play. All components begin in the toddler rooms, around 15 months, with the formal curriculum becoming more prominent in the preschool classrooms, ages three and above. However even in the youngest rooms, we find opportunities to begin introducing the three elements.
