The Children's School is a program of Sonoma State University Associated Students. We provide high quality early childhood education services to children of SSU students, staff and faculty families. The school has been a part of Sonoma State University as an idea in 1972, a beginning in trailers until 1978, and to this time in its current building.
Our NAEYC accredited developmental program for ages one through five years is steeped in active sensory experiences and grounded in environmental ethics.
We operate as the Child Development Laboratory on campus and welcome students from many disciplines to observe and learn from and about children. Our model school is staffed with Master Teachers who train our large SSU student staff in best practices and theory of early education.
The population of students, parents, staff and faculty represents diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Our goal is to utilize the richness of the campus community while providing optimum services to our families
