We welcome prospective parents to learn about our play-based, parent-participatory program, peek into classrooms in-session, explore our nature-based playground, and have the opportunity to discuss our program at length.

The deadline to apply for the 2018-19 school year has passed, however we are still accepting applications on a rolling basis as space is limited. If you are interested in applying to the school, please submit an application, along with a $75 non-refundable application fee. Although not mandatory, we strongly encourage that all families applying to SSDS first visit the school.
Review and Selection
As a Maryland State Department of Education approved school that relies on parent participation, our admission committee considers each application to determine which families best demonstrate their understanding of not only the philosophy of our approach to education but also the needs of our school.
