Multi­-age classrooms

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.
