The multi-age class offers the opportunity for a wonderful neighborhood-like grouping with 16-18 children ages 3 through 5 years with two lead teachers. The students are encouraged to grow in their independence, confidence and creativity through thoughtful play experiences. In these classes, children are building observation skills, speaking skills, self-regulation, problem-solving, and their love of learning through the promotion of their creativity and curiosity. (Children entering these classes are required to be fully toilet-trained.)
