Note from the Principal

Hello Spaulding Families!

It's been such a pleasure to have your children in our Preschool Program and get to know each one of them. Their smiles and laughter fill our rooms each day!

As we head into the colder weather please remember to have your child dressed appropriately. We believe that outdoor play is very important. We continue to take the children outside to play each day as long as the weather (including wind chill) is 25 degrees or above. Coats, hats and scarves are recommended!

If you know of any Midlothian Families looking for a preschool program for their child please continue to refer them to our school. We hold frequent preschool screenings for new children throughout the year. Feel free to contact me at 708-385-4546 or email

Enjoy this upcoming Holiday Season!

About Our School

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.

If you have a preschool aged child and reside in Midlothian District 143, please call the office to schedule a screening. 708-385-4546.

We look forward to meeting your child and your family!
