Junior Kindergarten

Junior Kindergarten Preschool Program

Early learning research shows that we have greatly underestimated what young children can and should be learning. Small children are curious, and they are born with a desire to learn.

Academics – We have a comprehensive curriculum, A BEKA, that builds both strong character and academic excellence. As you follow your child’s progress through the year, you will be thrilled to see your child learn the basics in reading, writing, and numbers. We also teach patriotism and the true meaning of holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter.
Extended Care – We offer the convenience of quality care from 6:30 a.m. until 6:30 p.m., so that your child remains cared for in a safe, nurturing environment when the academic day is completed.

Computers – Springfield Academy has a twelve station computer lab and Spring ‘N’ Dale has computers in their classroom to help children develop skills in technology and to enhance their education.
