Multi-Age Tuition Preschool Program

What is a Multi-Age Classroom?

Our tuition program is open to children ages 3 and 4 years old. This format allows teachers to meet children at their current developmental level, regardless of age. Children are often the best teachers and in a multi-age classroom there are more opportunities for children to learn from peers that have just mastered a skill. We provide a variety of materials and activities that allow each child to work at their own pace that is best suited for their individual interests and abilities. Teachers guide children to move along to the next stage of the curriculum when they are ready.

The benefits of enrolling in a multi-age classroom are:

  • Improved Academic Outcomes
