The SSC Co-op Preschool curriculum is play based. We believe a child’s play is their work and learning happens best when children use their bodies, their senses, their hearts, and their minds to discover the world. Facilitated play lays the foundation for architecture of the brain that will support academic success.
Through play in small and large groups children encounter real social situations learning to regulate their emotions and solve problems. In imaginative play children put themselves in a variety of settings where they can experiment with new behaviors, learn to collaborate with each other, and negotiate conflict.
This learning doesn’t happen automatically or only through unstructured play time. Our high adult to child ratio means that adults are always available to facilitate the social-emotional learning that will help children succeed.
Our curriculum is aligned with WaKIDS, Washington State Kindergarten Entrance Guidelines. It supports family connection, whole child assessment for individualized learning, supporting smooth transition into Kindergarten.
