The Kindergarten classroom provides children with a safe, nurturing, child-centered
classroom where children become active and engaged lifelong learners. The hands-on curriculum approach and
carefully designed classroom environment encourages children to become partners
in their own learning. Small class sizes
provide ample opportunity for large group, small group, and individual
instruction with no more than 12 children per adult.
