Your child will go through many changes in these rooms, and reach many developmental milestones.
From drinking formula/breast fed to drinking homogenised milk, eating pureed food to eating whole foods from our menu, lying still to walking, and babbling to talking.
The classroom ratio is 1 educator to 4 children with a maximum of 8 per classroom.
“Respecting a child means treating even the youngest infant as a unique human being, not as an object.” – Magda Gerber
