About Spring Hollow

Founded in 1997 by Dr. Katherine Ratliff, Spring Hollow Early Learning Center is a program inspired by the Reggio-Emilia philosophy. Our school takes place in a natural setting where children are encouraged to explore and express their understanding of the environment. 

Our students Are Intellectual

Because we encourage children to explore where their thoughts lead them.
 

Our students Are Loving
Because they learn you can't say, "You can't play."
 

Our students Are Happy
Because they find joy in intellectual and social exploration.
 

Our students Are Artistic
Because their individual languages of expression are validated.
 

Our children Are Safe
Because freedom is given to the mind and guidance is given to behavior.
