I would like to introduce myself. My name is Rhonda Barlow and I, along with Joan and Lee Fetters, helped found Spring Creek School, in 1991. I have a degree in elementary

Our school’s philosophy and practices reflect our dedication to high quality care
and education for young children. The Hersh Core Knowledge Curriculum is used in
our preschool, pre kindergarten, and kindergarten classes. We believe that children learn by doing and need small group sizes to receive the necessary attention each child deserves.
Young children need educated, well trained, and caring teachers who will guide them

opportunities to explore, create, and develop self confidence. Our classrooms offer
challenging play and learning choices, allowing children opportunities to experience

We practice positive methods of discipline that help establish consistent, age appropriate

Spring Creek School is safe, clean, healthy, and child oriented. Our goal is to meet the
social, emotional, intellectual, and physical needs, of each child entrusted to
