At SSEP, the student-teacher ratios vary by age: younger 2 year-olds is 1:5; older 2 year-olds is 1:6; 3 year-olds is 1:6; four year-olds is 1:8.
The teachers' lesson plans are driven by the school’s adoption of the Creative Curriculum. The SSEP website indicates, "The Creative Curriculum is an award-winning curriculum for preschool success. Using exploration and discovery as a way of learning, The Creative Curriculum enables children to develop confidence, creativity, and lifelong critical thinking skills."
Throughout the school year, children participate in a variety of events: Preschool Annual Picnic; Fire Truck Visit; Pumpkin Patch Party; Christmas Program; Creative Movement Program; Dr. Seuss Celebration; Easter Egg Hunt; Popsicle Parties; and Visits from Rags to Riches and Kazoom Theaters.
Community service activities are another community-building aspect of St. Stephen's.
