The curriculum at SSDS is designed around themes that are of interest to young children, such as nursery rhymes, animals, dinosaurs, and seasons.
Each themed-based unit includes:
Teachers take into consideration the interest of children with the understanding that each child is unique and learns at his or her own pace. We want SSDS students to leave here feeling confident, able to express feelings, and make friends.
Play is a child’s work. Playing allows them to learn not only what they need to know in kindergarten, but many things that will allow them to become happy and healthy adults.
SSDS designs activities and events that are appropriate for each age group every day. The curriculum is accumulative and constructed to grow with each child.
Our daily programs provide:
Participation Fees: As a parent participatory school, SSDS welcomes all families to play an active role in caring for children alongside our educators. With full respect for and recognition of the fact that some SSDS families may not take on this role, parents have the option to pay to cover the cost of supporting the classroom in lieu of committing to be in the classroom themselves.
