How is a third year at the Little Folks School different?

Because the school has mixed aged classes, and our approach is developmental, all children are challenged to move at his or her own pace. The benefit of a third year allows the child to extend and enrich their intellectual, social and physical development in a small environment, gaining confidence as an enthusiastic learner in all areas. Based on feedback from area Kindergartens, our students are well prepared to move on to the next level.

Where do children go to school when they leave Little Folks?

The majority of our children go on to attend area independent schools, with a small number attending public and parochial schools.
