About Us

In 2010, Dayspring Preschool opened its doors to our first group of early learners. Our school design was intentional from the start. The state of the art facility provides a safe and appropriate environment for your child to grow. Located on the campus of Danville Congregational Church, children are greeted in a warm and accepting community where imagination is allowed to roam free.

Our staff takes great pride and joy in delivering the most memorable and developmentally-sound approach to early education. We believe that success begins here, and we work very hard each day to ensure each student achieves this success.

Our Standards

Dayspring honors the WHOLE child and provides developmentally appropriate curriculum activities that address all the learning domains (physical, intellectual, social, emotional). Our goal is for children to develop a life-long LOVE of learning! We want our children to be self-confident and successful. We are preparing them for success in kindergarten and beyond.

We promote Inquiry Learning which, like play-based programs, acknowledges that children learn best when using their natural curiosity and exploring various hands-on learning materials. It provides for open-ended questions so that the child’s intellectual development is expanded, and critical thinking skills are enhanced. Inquiry Learning builds on information the child has and leads to a deeper understanding of the information content. It supports play as an important medium for brain development.

Families are an important part of our program. Dayspring Preschool believes in home and school collaboration. In addition to parent involvement and parent education opportunities, Dayspring Preschool provides a special place where parents as well as children experience the enriching benefits of a caring community.

Dayspring Preschool admits children of any race, color, religion, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities that are available to the children at the preschool. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship programs, and any other school-administered program.
