Our Classrooms! 
We have flexibility in setting up our classes and enrollment is always a key factor. 
  • maximum enrollment:  37 students in 3 classrooms
  • maximum class size:  14 students
  • classrooms typically have 1 teacher and 1 teacher assistant 
  • always a staff to child ratio of no more than 8 children per staff member

Our students love learning about the world around us from seasons and holidays to how plants and animals grow.  Counting, answering questions, experimenting with art media, running and jumping, learning classroom routines, and helping clean up are just a few skills covered in our classrooms.  We stay busy learning poems, recognizing numbers and patterns, playing with sand, building with blocks, moving to music, cutting and gluing, and so much more.  As our students grow we begin getting ready for Kindergarten.  Recognizing coins, measuring when cooking, learning alphabet letters and sounds, along with lots of art, building and moving, fill up the schedule!  

Something Extra!


Our students participate in weekly resource classes that include:  music class, library time and Chapel. 


We may visit various places within our community on field trips.  Each parent is required to provide transportation for his child to and from field trips.
