2019-2020 School Calendar

Discover the CSSC difference.

The Children’s School at Stephens College takes a holistic approach to education, emphasizing exploration and study of the arts and sciences. We believe in a constructivist curriculum that supports an ever-changing and developing child.

Embedded in the Stephens College teacher education program, our lab school environment allows for implementation of current theory and practice in the classroom. Master-level, certified teachers lead all classrooms assisted by pre-service teachers in training. 

Our programs include half-day preschool and full-day preschool for ages 3-5 and a K-5 elementary school where students are grouped by ability rather than age.
