Square One’s home base on Main Street is also the site of the Family Square, conceived as a community resource and meeting space for the many support groups and family services programs we offer. The Family Square is based on the “family center” concept that integrates multiple services under one roof, an approach that is proven successful across the country. Many of our programs offer fun opportunities for parents and their children to participate together. When adults need to attend to matters without the distractions that watching children can create, we can provide on-site professional child care. In the center of the Family Square is also a Springfield Cooperative Preschool.
This “SCOOP” classroom is located on the corner of Catharine and State Street in Springfield. This particular classroom is part of a Springfield Cooperative Preschool, a program hosted by Square One, The Springfield Public Schools, YMCA Early Learning Center, and HCS Head Start, Inc. The program is open to children living in Springfield and is at no cost to families who qualify. Learn more about SCOOP here.
At this time, we are active participants in the Department of Early Education and Care's Quality Improvement and Rating System (QRIS)
Our curriculum is based on national outcome expectactions and all our children are regularly assessed to ensure they are reaching their fullest educational, emotional and social potential. Literacy is a big component of our work with story books and literature incorporated into our daily learning schedules. Field trips are taken regularly to local museums, farms and other learning-focused local attractions.
We would look forward to hosting you for a tour and look forward to supporting your child's educational success.
