Guided Learning

Our low teacher child ratios (1:4 for infants and toddlers, 1:6 for the 2-year-old class, and 1:8 for the preschoolers) and nurturing play-based routine is the most effective way to help children develop crucial thinking skills (executive functioning) for future academic and social success.

Teachers use reflective practice techniques and parent expertise regularly to make plans for each child. We continually assess the children on an informal and formal basis, rethinking expectations in an ongoing way. Our curriculum model views teachers and parents as guides (not directors) of the learning process, and the environment and the children are equally important members of the teaching team.
