About Our School


We make every day a great day for learning at Southdowns!

Watch below to see a few of the ways that we have fun while learning!

Our Mission: The faculty and staff of Southdowns will provide a quality pre-school education in a nurturing and safe environment to prepare students for the future.

Our Vision: To prepare students to reach their full potential in relationships, kindergarten, the community and life.



• Southdowns Pre-Kindergarten Center follows the East Baton Rouge Parish curriculum for Pre-K students as well as all state mandates. We have three types of classes in which our typically developing students participate: BEST, LA4, and Reverse Mainstream.

• We also offer appropriate class placement for 3-5 year olds who have special needs, such as developmental delays or autism. Students with special needs have opportunities to interact with typically developing peers in classroom settings.

• Each classroom has one teacher and at least one paraprofessional.

• Speech therapy, occupational therapy, adapted physical education, and physical therapy services are provided as determined by a 1508 evaluation and IEP.

• Opportunities to have math and reading skills reinforced with iPads, Smart Tables, and SMART boards in our classrooms.
