The small classes and teaching methods used provide an atmosphere which allows children to advance beyond the program as far as they are interested and able with opportunities the children to pursue their special talents and demonstrate areas of strength. There is a ratio of one teacher to nine children during the morning and one teacher for twelve children in the afternoon. Since the class is small, the program is individualized; each child’s needs are evaluated and met through a schedule of daily work and activities. The emphasis is on learning by doing, employing all the senses and intelligences in a variety of stimulating, joyful and meaningful experiences.

Small class sizes and strong teacher-child interactions are key to optimal learning and development for your child.
