Hello and welcome to the Spring Garden Children’s Center of Easton Pennsylvania
The Spring Garden Children’s Center was the initiative of Reverend Robert Williamson of the First Presbyterian Church of Easton. Dr. Williamson wanted to provide a weekday nursery school to mind and nurture the city’s children to enable them to become good neighbors within the church’s community. Thus after many days of planning, the school was born in September 1955. The center has grown much over the past 50 years and with its dedicated staff and teachers, the growth potential is unlimited!!!
Spring Garden’s Mission is to become the daycare of excellence in the Easton Area with sufficient funding to support programs, families and staff in a fiscally responsible manner. At Spring Garden, we strive to provide a warm, loving environment for all children to grow and learn. We are proud of our children and our school and with your continued dedication and generosity, we plan for greater and more exciting opportunities to come. With your commitment, we will be in a strong position for sustained success!!!

We serve the community by offering affordable child care and educational services to the residents of Easton, PA and the surrounding area. Our operating funding comes from several sources including grants, fundraising and tuition. As we all know these recessionary times have been plagued with various funding cutbacks, especially in education and childcare. That is why we ask you to help us continue our mission to provide children and families with affordable care, education and support services that strengthens and improves their quality of life.
