Helping your child grow with a natural approach to learning.
At Wellspring Preparatory Academy, our mission is to provide loving, respectful care to all children in our program. We are dedicated to the social, emotional, and academic development of every child in our care.
How do we accomplish this? We base every decision on our founding principles; that all children deserve respect, compassionate care, and a fun and engaging environment that they feel safe and secure in.
Every policy is based on these beliefs. Our classroom schedule allows for a natural rhythm to be developed and set in place for consistency every day. Our curriculum takes note of every aspect of a child’s development to nurture and engage the whole child. The nutritious and wholesome food that we place down every snack and lunchtime is a time to show our care and gratitude. Our security and safety policies put in place enable the parents and children of Wellspring to be assured that everyone is safe and will be taken care of mind, body, and soul.
Whole Child Curriculum means that every aspect of children’s development is included in our comprehensive curriculum. This includes language and cognitive development, social and emotional growth, fine and gross motor skills, music and poetry, and science and nature exploration.
The Whole Child Curriculum is a set curriculum throughout the whole year. This means that there is a natural rhythm to the school, filled with fun festivals and celebrations and clear goals for parents and teachers. Having clear goals enables everyone to see the whole picture. They know that the skills that they are creating now, will be the firm foundation for the next part of the children’s life.
Whole Child Curriculum
Our bright and spacious classrooms are filled with developmentally appropriate toys and natural materials that can be used in many imaginative ways. We believe that children learn best in an environment that is consistent, engaging, and allows the child to move about their space. They have full access to many different varieties of toys and manipulatives, including art supplies such as beeswax, fabric, watercolor, clay, and paints. Every classroom and space is considered a place for learning and imaginative play.
We offer our curriculum in a building that has been thoughtfully designed so that every classroom has an abundance of natural light, easy access to the outdoor playgrounds, and clear sightlines for visibility and security.
Here at Wellspring Preparatory Academy, we hold firm in our belief that every child should be able to create, manipulate, and engage in their environment. We have created a magical playscape with berms, trike paths, native plants, climbing stones, pebbles, fairy gardens, veggie gardens, stages, and shaded reading nooks that invite everyone to come and rest.
Our goal is to provide a safe space where teachers can create an outdoor classroom, children can learn and use real-life skills, and everyone is welcomed to be themselves.
