3 - 5 year olds
Preschool is incredibly important for future academic success. At SCDC we take this responsibility seriously, preparing your children for Kindergarten and beyond by creating dynamic days balanced between imaginative play, physical play, and academic and social learning.
All preschool classrooms adhere to a 1:10 teacher to child ratio.
Academic and Social Learning
For children under five, play is a foundation for creativity, constructive problem solving, self regulation, and social learning. Play also helps preschoolers master the skills they will need for academic success and realize their potential to do well in school and life. Preschoolers play outdoors every day, not only for fresh air but also because it fosters cooperation and learning, creativity, and sparks an interest in the natural world.
All our preschool children enjoy weekly field trips to local parks and other activities. Swimming and gymnastics lessons, bike riding on site, and an annual overnight camp, parent potlucks, family fun nights, the end of year carnival and spring programs are the highlights of our school year.
Most days benefit from classroom rest time, this helps young bodies and minds recharge.
