Our oldest classroom continues to provide fun opportunities while learning. Our teaching teams provide opportunities for your child to help them become more confident people; they will have the skills to learn how to resolve conflicts with peers, have more of an understanding of how to be part of a group and also advocate their own their rights.
Our teachers provide experiences for children to continue to develop in their social and emotional development, cognitive, language and literacy and physical development. Our teachers are trained in Conscious Discipline. Conscious Discipline is a nationally acknowledged curriculum which supports social and emotional development of children. In our classrooms, Conscious Discipline is intertwined throughout our day including identifying feelings. We teach children to find composure by using breathing exercises or using the safe place in both of our classrooms. We also teach children to build their self-confidence by finding their “voice” when asserting their wants/needs with their peers.
