what we’re about

our classroom 

Our 4’s classroom is filled with so much excitement!  Ms. Laura and Ms. Annie have created a wonderful space for our students to discover and practice new skills, ask questions, and gain confidence in their learning!  We reinforce the social skills already acquired and expand the learning skills necessary to have a successful transition to Kindergarten, all while staying true to our play-based philosophy. 

The teacher/student ratio is 2:18.

our core values 

In our classroom, we teach important values like loving others, being helpful and kind, and what it means to be a  good friend and classmate. 

Each day we start class by saying aloud together… “Kind Thoughts, Kind words, Kind hearts” and take a big deep breath to prepare us for a great day!
