In each classroom (except the Parent Toddler Program) there is a three year age range. This provides a depth of experience for children in a number of important ways.
Older children can validate their learning by becoming the ‘experts’ in the room, sharing their knowledge and skills and taking on the role of the caretakers of the classroom.
- Children become confident in communicating and interacting with other children of all ages and abilities.
- Children build on prior learning and skills, refining and applying them to different situations as they progress through the three year cycle.
- Cooperation, not competition, takes place naturally due to the culture of respect for each individual.
