Developmentally Appropriate Curriculum


Our program includes an developmental appropriate curriculum that supports children’s earning and skills. The curriculum is developed to respond to the needs of each child. Developmental Appropriate Practices are fundamental practices to us when planing activities and learning experiences.

Our daily routines include both individual and small group learning experiences in a classroom. Your child will be introduced to important emerging literacy skills fostered thorough listening to stories and participating in music and movement. Fundamental introduction to math skills, such as numbers, shapes and sorting through sensory exploration, is taught in large and small group settings. Teachers incorporate language and social development through imaginative art projects, dramatic play and circle time. Your child will constantly be working to master all developmental stages while forging friendships and having fun in each creative learning experience!

Our center has an unique and dedicated team that brings excellence in care and education. The directors, the teachers, assistant teachers, food chef, consultants and everybody in between are working hard into creating the amazing program at SLS.

Enrichment Programs


"Great place for children with one of the best educational programs you can find in this area. Our family has been with SLS for almost 5 years and this place has become our second family by now. My oldest child was fully prepared for kindergarten after graduating from SLS. My little one is still there and loves it.  The teachers care about and work individually with every child, providing best care and education  you can think of.”
