In these rooms, your children will develop self-help skills, have an introduction to toilet training and all the while still exploring their environment and community around them.
The classroom ratio is 1 educator to 6 children with a maximum of 17 per classroom. While each room is licensed to support ages 18m-3 years, we try to keep each room within a 6 month age range.
