Every child deserves to be met at their individual learning level and it is our goal that every child feel successful and challenged. We are blessed to have a low student to teacher ratio, which allows us to give individualized teaching to each student. For children who are behind in class, we are very patient, giving the child the extra time that s/he needs. That may involve taking a different approach to the lesson, for example, a child with sensory issues may not be able to mix yellow with red paint in shaving cream. She can, however if the paint and cream stays within the confines of a plastic baggie. For children who are excelling, we challenge them with more difficult work or increased responsibility. If she knows her basic colors, then we move on to more obscure colors. If she has mastered a 10 piece puzzle, then we make sure there are several 25 piece puzzles in the classroom for her. We design lesson plans so that each child is challenged and so that each child finds success.
