Note from the Principal

Happy Fall Ya’ll!

I always love watching the children's excitement as we welcome in a new season. Our students have been busy tasting apples, taking nature walks and learning all about fall. The children are definitely settling in and their classrooms now feel like home to them. They are learning many concepts through play, socialization and hands-on activities. 

In order for them to continue to build this crucial foundation for learning, I ask that you make school attendance a number one priority. We know that Every Day Counts and our children thrive on routine. We appreciate your help with getting your child to school everyday. We also understand that sickness happens. We do our very best to sanitize and keep our classrooms clean to keep the germs away!

We have many fun fall activities coming up. Please see our calendar events on this page for details.

Welcome to Spaulding Early Childhood Center!

At Spaulding School we offer preschool educational services for children ages 3-5. We also provide services to children ages 0-3 and their families through our Best Start program. Here at Spaulding, we believe in fostering an early love for learning through play and developmentally appropriate hands on activities. We support all areas of children’s development including academic, cognitive, communication, motor and social skills.

We believe that building strong parent/family relationships help to increase a child’s success in school. At Spaulding we host many parent/family activities in addition to providing parent universities on relevant parenting topics.
