Goals, Skills and Keywords


Participants begin on their own, meeting the classroom as a lone individual free to explore as they interact with adults. When they return for group play, they are one of four in the classroom, with groups alternating days. As the program progresses the groups come together to form a group of eight. The classes are supported by multiple team members, specialists in early childhood education, behaviour, communication, motor skills, and speech and language.
