S3 is a community-based organization and strongly values community involvement. We believe that in order for children to have the greatest chance of success in life, the home | school | community connection needs to be strong. The S3 staff will provide seminars and trainings for student parents as well as any interested members of the community in order to encourage our holistic approach to education.
S3 teachers are members of the communities where our centers are located and therefore have unique understandings of both cultural and community needs. Each teacher will receive three months pre-service training, concentrated mentoring and coaching through the first few months of the center opening, and continuous professional development driven by teacher suggestions and needs throughout their entire time with S3.
Each S3 center will be equipped to enroll 75 children ages 3 months to 5 years old. They will learn, explore, and grow in classrooms separated by age, which will allow teachers to administer developmentally appropriate, play-based curriculum.
