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 expectations 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.
