Director: Mrs. Gypsy Holt

We would like to welcome you and your family to Sinking Spring Preschool . We are glad to have you here, and look forward to working together.

The purpose of Sinking Spring Preschool is for each child to develop socially, emotionally, physically, and mentally through appropriate activities offered in a nurturing environment.  We strive to instill a love of learning and encourage a natural curiosity in each child about his surrounding environment.

Each staff member is qualified by education and/or experience to work with young children in a group setting.  Each must demonstrate a genuine love of children and concern for their growth and development.  Teachers are encouraged to attend early childhood conferences, seminars, and courses.  Inservice training is held monthly and 3 days before the school session starts.  Each staff member will be certified annually by a practicing physician to be free from any disability which would prevent them from caring for children.
