Board Governance

Spring River School is part of The Playgarden, and financial and operational services are provided by The Playgarden administrative office and Board of Directors.  Day to day operations of Spring River are overseen by a full time Program Director, a part-time Administrator and volunteer Committee Members. Spring River, as part of The Playgarden, Inc., is a Florida 501(c)3 Corporation.

The Spring River Committee is comprised of local parents whose children attend Spring River, and caring community members who are committed to independent education. Playgarden Board and College of Teachers are pictured along with Executive Director Laura Cruz.

Our Committee Member volunteers are Kathy Bull, Dena Stapleton, Lauren Galvin, and Carrie Zarka Dooley. Teacher Committee Members are Jackie Stetson and Michelle Carter. Our College of Teachers meet regularly to discuss curriculum and programing.  Our annual budget is under the oversight of the Treasurer of the Board.  Carol Wagner, long time Controller and Administrator for the Playgarden, oversees our billing and bookkeeping activity.
