Springfield High School's “Little Miller’s Child Development Center" Phone (541) 744-4873 Fax (541) 744-4397
We are a school year run program from September to June. We take 2 weeks off in December (Winter Break) and 1 week in March or April (Spring Break) plus other various holidays.
Our goal is to provide a secure, caring environment where learning is fun. We believe that children learn best by becoming participants in the learning process through hands on activities.
Materials and activities are provided to stimulate the child’s imagination, creativity, problem solving skills and large and small muscle coordination. Independence, self-control and self-direction are encouraged.
Our policy is to provide equal opportunity for families and children to participate in our school’s program and to assure that there is no discrimination against any family or child based on the grounds of race, creed, color, religion, national origin, belief, age or sex.
We will serve exceptional needs children as long as we can meet their assisted needs. In instances where we cannot adequately meet the child’s needs, we will refer the family to other suitable placement. We reserve the right to terminate a contract if we feel we no longer we can meet the needs of the child with reasonable accommodations. The needs of the majority of the children will also be taken into account before taking this action.
Registration is necessary to assure your child’s admittance to our center. We charge an enrollment fee of $35 per school year. This is NON REFUNDABLE.
Children feel secure when there are well defined limits, routines, and safe environments. They will receive well planned activities, consistency, and positive encouragement and praise by the teachers. We offer choices within limits and logical consequences to their actions.
Physical discipline is NOT part of our program.
Parent Teacher Conferences can be held at any time by the request of the parent or teacher.
Our professional staff has been carefully selected to meet the needs of your Preschool aged child. All staff members have completed criminal history background checks, First Aid & CPR courses, food handling training, plus 15+ hours of Educational program training throughout the year. They also have many years of experience working in the Child Development field.
High School Students taking Child Development courses come into the classroom to observe children, and to work and learn under the supervision of the staff. These students can then transfer their credits to go to a community college.
