  •  We are working on having one location of resources for Sutter Park families at this time. We know and recognize that there is a lot of information coming out and we'd like to centralize where you can access games, activity ideas, and resources. More to come! 


    Curriculum Night 2019

    Thank you to all of our parents and community members for attending our annual Curriculum Night. The intent of our Curriculum Night was to provide foundational information on our curriculum while providing tips and strategies for you to use at home and within the community. We hope you walked away with a valuable make-it/take-it item, won some raffle prizes, and could implement a trick or two immediately. For those that could not attend, please see the files below for the handouts. If you need a printed copy sent home, please let your child's teacher know!

    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.
    If you are interested in the Head Start Program, which is also located at Sutter Park, please CLICK HERE for more information.


    Interested in having your child attend Sutter Park next school year as a typical peer? We are accepting students on our wait list for the next school year. 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. Spots will begin to be offered in the Spring of 2020. 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.


    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.
