The children range in age from eighteen months to six years. We have seven classrooms:
- 2 - toddler age (18 months - 3 years)
- 5 - preschool age (3-5 years)
- 1 - kindergarten
Our toddler and preschool classrooms have mixed-age groups. Children stay with the same teacher for two years, affording them a sense of belonging and continuity of experience. Mixed age groups afford children opportunities for leadership and support individual differences in development.
