For many young children this will be their first full day school experience. It is very important that the classroom environment promotes a welcoming, caring, safe and friendly learning atmosphere. Students are seated at tables rather than individual desks to promote a feeling of classroom community. In addition to whole group and individual work times, much of the day is spent in small group center activities. In this way students are encouraged to become self-sufficient while working together to achieve their goals.
