7:1 Child to Teacher Ratio

Our preschoolers focus on their curriculum during circle time which incorporates recognition of letters and numbers activities, social stories, and science activities. Some of the units covered are counting, grouping, shapes, letters in the alphabet, colors, identifying objects, baking, understanding the weather patterns, and more. The goal in this classroom is to create a positive, constructive and welcoming environment for all of our students. We are very adventurous and love to explore the town of Aspen to open the minds and creativity of these active learners! 


Self-help skills are an important part of the preschool experience. Children are encouraged to clean up toys and materials - we teach this through modeling, music and song. Children are learning to be responsible for their own things and keeping items in their cubbies. Children of this age enjoy their friendships with each other. Teachers give them plenty of time for unstructured, imaginative play, which helps them develop language skills and socialization.
