• Early Childhood Mission & Goals

    • The SJSD early childhood program is committed to providing experiences in an increasingly inclusive environment.

    • The SJSD early childhood program recognizes that learning in the preschool years is unique and developmental. The staff begins by working to understand individual preschoolers' development, strengths, needs, and interests.

    • SJSD early childhood educators are committed to providing learning experiences that allow preschoolers to learn actively, thoughtfully, and socially in an environment that is safe and allows for mistakes.

    • SJSD early childhood educators honor parents as ‘first teachers’ and are committed to working with parents to help the children in our care learn and grow.
