Profile: Spring Knolls embraces a play-based learning philosophy, focusing on the whole child and fostering their social, emotional, cognitive, and physical growth. Our experienced and dedicated staff, in strong partnership with parents, empowers children to reach their full potential through the power of play. Spring Knolls is a place where children are taught to appreciate themselves and the world they live in. The faculty and co-oping parents work as a team in the classroom to provide a structured but relaxed and nurturing environment, one in which the whole child develops. We believe that a preschooler’s self-esteem is rooted in the mastery of his or her physical environment, as well as the ability to be part of a social group.

Spring Knolls offers a learning environment that provides carefully designed, structured activities suitable to our children’s progressing developmental levels, as well as child-directed learning experiences that take advantage of their innate curiosity, to further their understanding of the world and people around them.
