San Diego Children’s Academy is a Russian Immersion Preschool. Our mission is to raise children who are socially active, curious, tolerant, caring for the nature and respectful to others. The program at SDCA stresses the importance of early childhood education and allows children get the most out of their preschool years. As a result, our graduates enter kindergarten confident, knowledgeable, and with the love for learning.
San Diego Children’s Academy is committed to the development of the whole child. Through a combination of play-based, sensory, and structured activities, our goal is to concentrate on social, emotional, and cognitive growth, as well as fine and gross motor development. Each child is celebrated as an individual with distinct personalities, needs and capabilities and we strive to ensure their preschool experience is a positive one that will last a lifetime. Our teachers are dedicated to providing a modern, safe, and loving environment that fosters acceptance and respect for all in our culturally diverse community.
Our curriculum approach includes activities and lessons from the innovative methods of both Russian and American Early Childhood Education Programs. Curiosity and wonder characterize the preschool aged child and are encouraged by the varied learning opportunities presented each day. A balanced combination of child-initiated and teacher-directed activities offers ample opportunities for each child to explore and develop at his/her own pace and to gain confidence in making choices, building relationships, taking risks, and following directions on a one-to-one basis as well as in a group setting.
Our program ensures that along with great education, our students experience the fun of celebrating various holidays throughout the year. While those celebrations are designed specifically for our students and take place within our classrooms, parents still get a chance to celebrate with us some of the major holidays and see their children perform. To make learning fun, SDCA program includes theme classes, where they get a chance to talk to our guest speakers and their favorite characters. Our Facebook page allows parents stay informed and feel included on what their children are doing and learning weekly.
