Springhill Head Start is located in Walker and is connected to Head Start for Kent County’s Central Office. Our site offers full day services to children ages 6-weeks through 5-years-old including 1 infant toddler classroom, two 3-year-old preschool classrooms, and two 4-year-old preschool classrooms. Springhill offers a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) allowing children to explore their environment in new and creative ways. Our teachers are excited to work alongside you and your family to provide a high-quality school experience.

Our playground is separated into three fenced in areas overlooking a pond where children can observe many animals in their natural environment. One infant toddler playground includes a grassy hill with a play structure designated for our infant toddler students. Our preschool playground includes a play structure, bike track, and outdoor garden. Our third playground known as the weather deck emulates WZZM 13’s weather deck where children have the opportunity to explore outside with a STEAM focus. We utilize our outside playgrounds as an extension of our classrooms.

Children have the opportunity to explore high quality toys that promote learning and exploring. We focus on hands on activities, learning through play, and individualizing for each child in our care.

Due to our STEAM focus, our preschool classrooms have a Smart Board which is an interactive touchscreen instructional tool connected to a computer that provides countless opportunities for hands on learning.

Our tower garden allows us to safely grow plants inside during the cold winter months where children are able to experience the life cycle of plants.

Enjoy all the opportunities Springhill has to offer by becoming part of our school family.
