SSDS designs its curriculum with the whole child in mind. Based on themes that interest children, activities are designed to motivate all types of learners. Every theme-based unit includes development of fine and gross motor skills, social and emotional growth, and cognitive understanding. Cognitive skills include activities in math, science, reading, and social studies. Children enjoy learning through creative play, art and small group work.
At SSDS, teachers are given the latitude to design their own curriculum with the guidance of developmentally appropriate objectives that are designed especially for our school. Even though children may be learning through different themes, the objectives adhered to by all teachers ensures that each child is learning the same set of skills as they move through our school. These objectives provide the teachers with the necessary tools to prepare our children for success as they move onto their next school experience. Our educational program is also designed to assess children as they develop socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively. Records are kept that allow teachers and parents to see a child’s growth each year. Good assessment tools help the SSDS staff address the needs of each child. SSDS does not have any special curriculum for advanced students.
