This school is really pretty amazing. It is truly play based learning and very child directed. My 4 year old daughter has thrived here. The children are outside twice a day (unless it is below 20 degrees or raining) and have lots of time to climb, bike and explore with friends. They have music class 4 times a week, directed by a music teacher and creative dramatics on the 5th day, which is taught by a drama teacher. They also go to wood shop once every other week and work with hammers, nails, and drills (supervised closely by the wood shop teacher). Art is an essential element at the school and the children visit the art room once a day and can also choose to visit the art room during outside free time and inside free time. The classrooms have age appropriate toys, games, costumes, etc. that the children can play with. There are also stations with papers, pencils, scissors, markers and tape so they can practice handwriting, math, etc. The teachers are all very loving and certified early child educators. Love this place!
