Profile: Silver Spring Day School (SSDS) is a parent participatory preschool with more than 150 children in classes designed for 2-year-old to pre-kindergarten students. For over 45 years, SSDS has remained steadfast in its belief that children learn best when they are actively engaged in their learning.

Our program is designed to nurture and encourage children in all aspects of their development. Our play-based philosophy allows for just the right balance of challenge and fun. SSDS allows each child the opportunity to explore the world around them, build meaningful friendships, and make discoveries about themselves. This fosters a strong sense of independence and social awareness. We emphasize social-emotional skills like sharing, self-calming, and problem solving in our daily curriculum. Our goal is to guide and engage children and help them become well-balanced, productive, life-long learners.
