Fall 2020 Programming UpdatePreschool: We are currently planning to offer in-person preschool programming at the beginning of the year. We will be prepared to move into different learning models throughout the program year, including going to an online, distance learning format as needed. If you are currently registered for a class this fall and your plans have changed please let us know at 763-600-5900.
Early Childhood Family Education: Family input will guide design of programming for the fall and throughout 2020-21. We are engaging with our Early Childhood Family Education families to understand interest in coming on site and/or connecting in other ways to support families and children's development.
The five short years from birth to the start of kindergarten are an important time of rapid growth and learning. In Spring Lake Park Schools, early childhood families have the opportunity to grow and learn together in a safe, supportive and nurturing environment that stimulates learning, exploration and play. Children are free to explore individual interests while learning the skills and behaviors necessary to be successful in school. Early Childhood can help prepare your child for academic achievement and lifelong success.
Research has shown that the first years of life provide critical windows of opportunity for learning. Which is why all of our Early Childhood classes are taught by qualified professionals who have at least a four-year college degree and hold a teaching license from the Minnesota Department of Education.
Spring Lake Park Schools Community Education offers classes, events and programs are designed to give parents information, ideas and skills to support their child’s rapid growth and development from birth to kindergarten.
Spring Lake Park Schools Early Childhood, Discovery Days and Preschool programs received the highest possible rating - four out of four stars - from "Parent Aware," an organization which measures best practices identified by research that help children succeed.
