Each class program will be planned with consideration given to the age and developmental level of the children. Keeping in mind that no two children develop in the same way, at the same time or rate. Daily periods will be provided when a variety of experiences are concurrently available for the children to select their own activities. This should provide some protection from excess fatigue and over-stimulation. Children will be given individual attention daily.

It is the aim of our program to provide each child with a variety of experiences.
