The classroom is large, bright and aesthetically arranged for the children’s comfort, security and enjoyment. The activities are arranged within easy reach of even the smallest children. Children work at tables and on mats on the floor where they are most comfortable. They have free access to the outside play area in all weathers.
Our approach is child centered in that they work uninterrupted; choosing the activities that interest them. They are encouraged to manipulate, explore and discover.
