Early ChildHood Center

Welcome to Wellspring Early Childhood Center!

The Wellspring Early Childhood Center (ECC) is a vibrant and joyful community where every child is cherished. Guided by loving and committed teachers, students learn to make wise choices, work and play well with others, and demonstrate high standards of character and courtesy.

Purposeful play is a hallmark of our program, as research shows it is one of the most important factors in young students’ social-emotional, physical, and cognitive development. With the teacher modeling, students use real-world materials and tools to explore learning themes in math, literacy, and science while practicing verbal language and persevering in problem-solving in both indoor and outdoor environments. Furthermore, students gain a critical foundation in early reading as they learn all English letter sounds, practice writing skills, and listen to rich stories read aloud daily.

In the Wellspring Early Childhood Center, every day matters as we instill the growth mindset and habits of character that develop innovative thinkers, skilled communicators, and courageous leaders.

CURRICULUM

The early childhood program provides initial learning experiences in language development, number concepts, creative skills, and social and physical development. Students receive the building blocks for perceiving, thinking, and problem solving through the use of concrete experiences. The educational experience provided at the WellSpring School is balanced and varied as the child’s world of awareness is extended from the home to the classroom.

Foundations For Life

Early childhood is a critical age to begin laying a foundation in fundamental life skills such as learning integrity, developing values, showing good moral character, thinking carefully, communicating and working well with others, and taking care of the world around us.

Play Based Activities

Play and physical development are important parts of our program. From the inside of our building to the outdoor classroom, it will be clear that our children are growing in a developmentally appropriate environment.

Literacy Foundations

At the WellSpring School kindergarten students will learn to navigate their emotions and learn how to socialize with their friends. They will be exposed to stories, rhythm, songs, and rhymes to build a foundation of literacy skills.

Nurturing Environment

The WellSpring School provides our youngest students with a warm, safe, and family-like environment. The nurturing environment of our early childhood classrooms is a perfect place to learn about life.

Creative Skills

Art, music, and movement are all incorporated into daily activities, helping early childhood students to learn through creative play and active discovery of their world.
