As a Sudbury Cooperative Student, Your Child Receives
- The benefit of experienced, committed educators:
Our EEC certified staff have an average of more than ten years experience in the classroom. Their degrees are in diverse fields, including science, early childhood, and art. They share a passion for developmentally appropriate learning that engages the whole child.
- A gentle introduction to school:
Our teachers visit with each child prior to the beginning of school. For new students and Toddlers, home visits are available. We actively work with parents of children with separation anxiety to make the transition to school as easy as possible.
- A customized approach:
Our curriculum is a living document, which changes according to the needs of the children. We show our respect to each child’s individuality by helping each develop at his or her own pace and readiness. Small classes allow teachers to tailor lessons to each child’s interests, and to maximize individual attention. Teachers get to know each child both as an individual, and as part of his or her family.
- A foundation for social success:
Sudbury Co-op students build social and emotional competence through interactions with a wide variety of parents and teachers. One benefit of this interaction is a strong foundation for learning throughout each child’s school career, and for the rest of their lives.
