Sapling Teachers

The Saplings Room provides a warm, safe and nurturing environment for children that begin the year between the ages of 12 months and 23 months. The three full time teachers respect each child’s individual needs and therefore follow a flexible schedule that caters to each child. As the children grow through the year, the classroom grows with them. The room creates a warm stimulating environment where children feel secure exploring their surroundings. Teachers recognize that young toddlers learn through doing and provide interactions and experiences that encourage comfort and independence. The children go outside daily either using buggies for walks or exploring in our Natural Outdoor Classroom.
