MULTI-AGE LEARNING

Our students learn in multi-age classrooms, with an age range of 2-3 years in each class. The multi-age approach recognizes that children may be advanced in some skills and concepts, yet need more time in others. It encourages peer support, develops emotional intelligence and motivates students to work to the higher grade level, while allowing students at least two years to master learning objectives.
