More:

  • 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.
  • Weekly rotation of centers (ou les modules) based on our themes also allows children to engage independently with the curriculum, and provides time for self-led exploration.
  • The teacher to child ratio in the preschool classroom is 1:8, and there are a maximum of 16 children enrolled per day.
