Campbell Early Childhood Center

  • Campbell ECC classroom Opening the 2018-2019 school year, the former Campbell Elementary building became an interim early childhood center for up to 200 pre-K students targeted at preschoolers who meet low-income guidelines and have the greatest education needs.  This expansion allowed SPS to serve 50 percent more students with early childhood services.  Additionally Campbell ECC was designated as a pilot site for early childhood transportation. Campbell ECC also serves as the Parents as Teacher hub for this region of the district.

    Families that have a child who will be  three or four years old before Aug. 1 may be eligible to receive free early childhood education services.  Those individuals should complete this form to indicate their interest.  Upon completion, an SPS staff member will reach out with more information.
