What is the class size?

Our progressive model follows the interest, strengths and curiosities of our children therefore we keep our classes small to provide intimate learning opportunities supported by a co-teaching model

What if my child is not potty trained?

Potty training is a very individual milestone and we encourage children to develop at their own pace. therefore all our toddler classes do not require potty training however we support you in the process.

What is your discipline policy?

We see discipline as a teachable moment where teachers model language for children to empower them to express their needs as well as to show empathy for others. These are the building blocks of strong communication and cooperative skills.
