The mission of Rock Spring Preschool, a ministry of outreach from Rock Spring Presbyterian Church (RSPC), is to provide an outstanding preschool to our community, as a reflection of our faith and love.

Love and respect are shown to each child, who is understood to be unique and wonderful. Each child is nurtured through developmentally age-appropriate activities designed to meet his or her social, physical, emotional, spiritual and cognitive growth in a safe and enriching environment.

We welcome children and families from diverse religious and cultural backgrounds. We do this by emphasizing values such as sharing, respect for others, perseverance, love of self and others, cooperation and a sense of stewardship of the world.

As a vital extension and continuation of the mission and purposes of the Rock Spring Presbyterian Church (RSPC), Rock Spring Preschool encourages and stimulates, in an age-appropriate manner, the love of God, appreciation for the Christian faith, respect for the traditions of many faiths and strong values such as self-respect, service to and respect for others and protection of the environment.


Rock Spring Preschool’s philosophy blends the findings of leading researchers, teachers and child development specialists. We follow the requirements of the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL) and the guidelines of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Our curriculum is designed around the following principles:

  • Children learn and develop at their own rate and in their own style;
  • Creativity and the freedom to explore, experiment and problem  solve will foster and enhance a child’s cognitive development;
  • Children learn best in a safe, nurturing environment;
  • Children learn best when they are viewed as individuals and treated with respect, acceptance and caring;
  • Learning is enhanced when children are actively involved and encouraged to make choices;
  • Children learn through play using their senses;
  • Self-confidence directly relates to the ability to learn.
