We're Safe & Secure
Our Early Learning Center was constructed 3 years ago, inside of Ben Franklin Elementary. 4-year-old kindergarten has its own hallway along with our special education early childhood program. There are no interruptions from passers by, and the hallway is secured during the day, giving it the feel of a "school within a school," which is perfect for our youngest learners.
Our 4K program is a play based program with academics woven into our day. Students learn literacy and math skills and physical, social and emotional skills every day. They learn about being friends, getting along with others, how to solve problems, how to identify and manage feelings and so much more!
We have lots of ways that parents can get involved in our 4K program! Parents volunteer in the classroom, attend field trips and class parties and we have a parent advisory board. We also have three family nights a year, including an open house, a math night and a literacy night. Student progress is shared twice a year through report cards, twice through conferences, and is available any time parents would like an update.
Students are at different places in the development of their academic and social/emotional skills. 4K teachers work with students at their individual levels. We take students from where they are to where they need to be.
Small Class Sizes
Class size is important! Each classroom has a certified teacher and an educational assistant. We strive for a class size of around 20, with 2 adults in every room, all day, every day.
Our Students Aim High
Success at SDMF starts with 4K. Our students have gone on to do great things, earning more than $2 million in scholarships, becoming state champions in athletics and being nationally recognized for achievement in academics.
Our 4K teachers are certified teachers with a four-year degree in education. Many of our teachers have or are working towards a Master's Degree in education. We have experienced teachers that go through professional development every year. We collaborate together to meet the needs of all of our students.
4K is FUN
Our students LOVE coming to school each day! We provide educational experiences in a fun, enjoyable environment and we strive to make learning fun each and every day that your child comes to school! Our goal is to help your child develop a love of learning that will last a life time!

Our vision is to provide all four-year old children with early learning opportunities to ensure life-long success.
- We value children learning through play
- We believe all children should learn in a safe and nurturing environment
- We value the collaborative role of all team members: family, school and community
