Welcome to PreSCHool

Springside Chestnut Hill Academy's Early Childhood Center (ECC) opened its doors in January of 2020! ECC offers a warm and stimulating private preschool environment in Philadelphia for children 18 months to 4 years old. Aligning with SCH's mission to inspire unbounded curiosity and independent thought, the center follows the Reggio Emilia approach—an internationally recognized and respected method of teaching.

SCH is an Equal Opportunity Provider. We look forward to welcoming you on campus to start your preschool journey at SCH Academy, Philadelphia's largest independent private school located in Chestnut Hill.

Our son has been to several different daycares, and after one day at the ECC we noticed a huge difference. Not only have interactions with his teachers been warm, welcoming, and communicative, he has blossomed. At the end of each day, he is eager to try and talk about all the activities and adventures they embarked on, as well as all his new friends. He comes home full of life, love and learning.
