Ages 18 months to 3 years
This multi-age class forms a community of 12-16 children all working together or alongside one another. In this type of setup, an 18-month old learns how to put away their jacket and shoes in the morning. Two-year-olds learn how to prepare their own snacks, and 3-year-olds have the opportunity to teach their younger peers before moving on to Primary.
