Sutter Park News


    We have had a few phone calls and emails regarding what you need to do before school starts in August. Our office mailed out a packet at the end of June to all families, new and returning. In the mailing,  everyone will receive a new school year calendar, a teacher letter and supply list, and Sutter Park forms. Sutter Park forms are due to the front office by August 9th. 

    For returning students, you do not need to do anything about enrollment. If your child attended Sutter Park last school year, they are automatically enrolled for this coming school year. 

    For new students to Sutter Park, you must finish your enrollment by completing the online registration and going to the Welcome Center in person. You can find the online registration by going to Worthington's homepage and clicking Welcome Center. The earlier you complete this and make an appointment, the better. Their appointments get full as August gets closer! 

    Last, for peer students new and returning, tuition of $135 is due August 15th (this pays for September's tuition). You will only be able to pay in our office either by cash or check. My Payments Plus will not be set up yet. 

    Questions? Call our office at 614-450-4900. Please note our secretary will be out and our office will be closed June 13-July 17. You can always email the principal Mrs. Hosking at if you have questions during that time. 


    Sutter Park is the home to Worthington City Schools' Early Childhood Program for children with special needs and typically developing children.  We currently have 14 "half-day teachers" who have up to 12 students in a morning class and 12 students in an afternoon class.  Half of their students have been identified with special needs and half of their students are typically developing peers who serve as role models in the program.  Our 3 year-olds and early 4 year-olds attend the morning classes and our later four year-olds and 5 year-olds attend the afternoon classes. We also have 2 "half-day teachers"" who have up to 4 special needs students in their classrooms but no typically developing peers. This program is now called Foundations.  Students are placed in the Foundations program based upon the needs identified in their IEPs.  

    For Worthington families of special needs students who do not choose a center-based program and whose goals identified through the IEP can be met through itinerant services, we also have one itinerant teacher who provides an hour of services weekly in private preschools, daycares or the home setting.
    Our program has four Speech/Language Pathologists and four Occupational Therapists who provide services for our special needs children whose IEPs indicate the need.  They frequently have typically developing peers join them in activities to model skills for their peers.  An Adapted Physical Education Teacher and Physical Therapist also provide services for those students who qualify for these services based upon their IEPs.

    Interested in having your child attend Sutter Park next school year as a typical peer? We still have a few openings in our morning and afternoon classes as of July 9, 2019.Children placed as typically developing peer models must be potty trained and score age appropriate on two questionnaires. The tuition is $135.00 per month, parents provide transportation, and families must reside in the Worthington School District. If you are interested, please call the main office at 614-450-4900 or email Tricia Hosking at Please include your phone number in your email.

    Once we receive your information, you will be placed on our wait list. Spots will be offered according to the number of available spaces, beginning with the students who are at the top of the wait list.


    Do you have concerns about a child within your home that is between the ages of 3-5 that currently DOES NOT attend Sutter Park or participate in the Worthington Early Childhood Program? Are you worried that they are not growing in an area or areas of development (this could include speech/communication, gross motor, fine motor and pre-academic skills)? 

    If so, please reach out to our Intake Coordinator, Frederica Stupka, at 614-450-4900 and she is more than happy to answer some of your questions.
