welcome to the
Open to children between the ages of 2.5 to 3.5, the Greens class helps the child develop positive social skills as the world opens up for them and peers become more important. Dramatic play becomes a central element of the school day, beginning math skills and the printed word are incorporated into daily activities, and class field trips are introduced (pre-pandemic, about 4 field trips take place throughout the year.)
There is no requirement to be toilet trained (as is the case for all Meekins classes). When your child is ready for that step, the teachers are happy to assist in the process.
