Southdowns Programming

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.
