During this first school experience, we emphasize routine, care of self, care of environment and care of each other. Through grace and courtesy lessons, each child is taught how to approach each other with kindness and respect. We create activities that assist them in developing fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination skills, prediction, observation, classification, exploration, reflection, nutrition, social behavior, free thinking, sharing, imagination, creativity, risk taking, self-esteem, a love of the great outdoors.

We believe in following the child and allowing the child to grow towards independence and learning. Areas of the classroom include practical life, language, math, sensorial, manipulatives as well as gross motor skills and creative lessons.

The social and emotional experience of the toddler is also significant. They are encouraged to use their words with lessons on grace and courtesy. Lessons incorporating kind words, manners, sharing and expressing their emotions are prompted everyday. The age difference among fellow classmates allows them to use their imagination, creativity, and help one another for various tasks.
