Russian Immersion Preschool - San Diego Children's Academy
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.
We agree with the statement “healthy body fosters healthy mind.” That is the reason we think nutrition is crucial in child’s overall development. We provide our students with meals prepared with organic products. We serve seasonal fruits and vegetables throughout the year. We limit the amount of sugar and baked goods our students get in their diet. Also, we do not serve processed food and fast food meals.
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.
