"The basic philosophy of the school is encouragement of the development of the whole child with emphasis on social, intellectual, physical and emotional growth. The children come to understand their own self-worth and to appreciate and respect the uniqueness of others. With a sense of self, children are more capable of handling life and are more receptive to others.
Another tenet of the Spring Knolls philosophy is the goal of a racial, cultural and economic mixture in the enrollment. Research has proven that the preschool years are the time to begin helping children see their own uniqueness as well as the differences strengthened in 1970 when Spring Knolls joined Washington Preschools, Inc., an organization specifically dedicated to the goals of full integration. The curriculum at Spring Knolls, therefore, involves an ongoing cultural enrichment program that is incorporated into the classroom activity. There is a continuous sharing of ethnic, racial and religious cultures reflecting the diversity of the school. "
