10:1 Child to Teacher Ratio
Children will be engaged in activities which will prepare them in many ways for the kindergarten year which follows. Fine motor development continues with regular activities which include drwaing, painting, cutting, puzzles and writing activities. We lay the foundation for later skills in math by counting, measuring, weighing, cooking, and exploring relative values. We conduct experiments of all kinds to develop the children's natural curiosity, and we explore literacy on many levels including stories, books, poems and songs, making the connection between letters, words, and sentences expressing thoughts. Thanks to all these experiences, the feedback we have received in years past is that our children are well prepared and experience a smooth transition to kindergarten.
