  •  We launch each month with the introduction of our cultural study of the month, which often honors the heritage of a staff or Atlas community member.
  •  Meanwhile, typical preschool themes such as “five senses”, “life cycles”, “community helpers”, etc. are integrated into weekly subthemes.
  •  The teacher to child ratio in the preschool classroom is 1:5, and there are a maximum of 10 children enrolled per day.
