Our Story Of Learning
Each child begins to write their story of learning the moment they step through the doorways at Springfield Plains. Under the thoughtful guidance of teachers and through positive partnerships with families, each child’s story unfolds. We believe in fostering an environment where everyone is valued and trusted. Our mission is simple: Love. Learn. Lead.
