1. What is an inclusive classroom?
An inclusive classroom is where children with disabilities learn alongside children without disabilities in the same space. It provides a setting in which all children feel welcome, supported, and valued.
Inclusive classrooms provide an environment where all preschoolers can learn and succeed. They are based on the belief that all children have the right to quality education and promote values of equality, respect and belonging. All children should feel that they are an equal part of the class and that their individual needs are being considered and met.

4. Does my child need to be potty trained?
No, your child does not need to be potty trained regardless of the room your child is placed in.
5. How will I know what kind of a day my child had?
Electronic communication is done frequently throughout the day using the Brightwheel app. This app allows us to update you on things like activities your child participated in, how much food they ate, potty schedule, naps, as well as share pictures and videos with you!
6. What are the qualifications of the teachers?
Each classroom is staffed with a qualified early childhood educator leading the class as well as an experienced assistant teacher.

Our assistant teachers have a number of different related backgrounds that bring a broad range of skills to the classroom.
