The sunflower classroom

Our Sunflower classroom is for 4 and 5 year olds during the day, as well as Kindergarteners after school. The Sunflowers work on more long-term discovery projects, as well as plenty of discussion in large and small groups. This class is full of hands-on learning activities that promote cognitive and social-emotional development. A main focus of our Sunflower room is to support the growth of personal as well as social responsibility.
