Our two preschool classrooms are staffed with two full-time teachers. Our three year old classroom maintains a ratio of nine children to one adult. The four/five year old classroom maintains a ratio of ten children to one adult. The maximum group size for both classrooms is 16 children. In preschool classrooms, the curriculum begins to expand and is based on children's interests and teacher observations.
Center philosophy is based on best practices outlined by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and emphasizes “they learn best when … they feel safe and secure in their environment … they learn what is meaningful to them …they are given opportunities to learn and develop through exploration and play.
