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. We are an extended year site and have an infant toddler classroom, a 3-year-old preschool classroom, and three 4-year-old preschool classrooms. Springhill classrooms offer a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) allowing children to explore their environment in new and creative ways. Our creative 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. Our playground includes a grassy hill, a play structure, bike track, outdoor garden, and a weather deck that emulates WZZM 13’s weather deck. We utilize our outside playground as an extension of our classrooms.
While inside each classroom, 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, 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.
We also are able to use our Tower Garden 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 along with supporting your child’s social emotional development by becoming part of our school family.
