A Solid Education Promises A Bright Future
Your Child's Safety Is The Center's Primary Focus
IT'S ALL ABOUT GAINING MORE INDEPENDENCE!
Your 3 year old is going through great changes, and their greatest desire is to become independent — something you’ll love as a parent!
Our curious caterpillars learn much through participation and of course their curiosity. They gain more independence as they desire to do things on their own and see the outcome. Potty training is essential and an important milestone for our little three-year-old class. Their language and social skills are still developing so they might stutter when talking in full phrases and communicating their thoughts. These little caterpillars will soon want to start taking control of their environment by trying challenging tasks by themselves and planning activities on their own.
Some challenges our Curious Caterpillars might encounter is sharing with others and being a little stubborn (although they have significantly progressed). These little ones just need to be encouraged, and that is exactly our goal as we go through their daily routine in every activity.

Our Curious Caterpillars Program
Toddlers flourish in routine!
Toddlers feel confident in themselves and secure about their world when they know what to expect. Which is why we have carefully designed (orchestrated?) a routine that best fits their natural rhythm and your schedule!
- Your Curious Caterpillar Gets A Warm Welcome From Our Teachers and Staff
- Yummy Healthy Breakfast (8:00am)
- Personal Hygiene Care Routine (diapering/potty/handwashing)
- Free Play (we arrange self-directed activities that help your child gain indepedence and learn about themselves!)
- Learn about different subjects at school in a fun manner
- The class is divided up in activity rotations (puzzle play which helps stimulate critical thinking; coloring which promotes creating thinking)
- Great way to refresh the children and get them excited for the rest of the day.
- Allows for expression of their creative thinking as they sing and dance along with their peers and teachers.

I was nervous putting my two-year-old daughter in daycare for the first time, but after meeting the teachers and staff members of Springview Academy I knew she was in great hands. Every day she wakes up excited to go to school and every afternoon she comes home with a huge smile on her face. I am looking forward to making memories with my daughter and the Springview Academy staff in the years to come.

My son is on his 2nd year here (2yr old & 3yr old class) and I will keep him here for VPK as well. I love the staff, it's always clean and I feel my child is safe. They always have activities for the kids (like the Christmas show, Hispanic heritage parade, and this year snow day) and they encourage the parents to be involved. I truly recommend this place to anyone who is in this area as they do give the best they can to make sure your child is educated and taken care of.

Springview is a wonderful place! They took such great care of my son! The staff and teachers are super nice and love all of the kids! If we weren’t in the middle of a pandemic I would send him back because he loved it so much there. I wasn’t worried at all to leave him, which made life a lot easier! Definitely recommend!
- Kristen Falepaini
Very thankful my long time friend recommended this school. As a mother you always worry you don’t make the right decision as to who watches your kids. I can honestly say the staff and overall experience has made me feel secured and more at ease knowing my baby is at a safe and clean place. During these tough times some peace of mind goes a long way. Highly recommend!!!
