Sweet Day Community School offers a child centered, developmentally appropriate curriculum, rich in creative arts, and exploration of the natural world.
We are inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach, and view children as powerful individuals capable of directing their own learning through exploration and play. Our Teachers serve as guides; supporting and facilitating learning and social-emotional development through a multitude of activities and materials.
We also believe in creating a school community that sees strength in our diversity, and we include anti-bias training in our ongoing staff development.

We believe children are competent, capable citizens with a right to a respectful, relationship-based childcare community. We build our curriculum from the natural interests of the children. This inquiry-based approach promotes collaboration, creativity, and reciprocity. We strive to make visible the interests and voices of our children, and engage with meaningful connections as a community.
We are proud to offer regular yoga classes through Imagination Yoga. Included in your child's tuition are weekly yoga classes from our visiting, certified Imagination Yoga instructor.
Imagination Yoga is a unique, curriculum-based program, through which our instructor uses an imaginative, adventure story to guide students through a series of yoga poses. Each adventure provides the physical benefits of yoga along with child-appropriate techniques for calming and concentration, and exercises in kindness. Child-sized yoga mats are provided!
