Senior Classroom

Youngset's Senior Class has a learning atmosphere filled with fun, enthusiasm, and imagination.  Learning takes place throughout the classroom. Children move freely about the room to explore the learning stations. Teachers and parent helpers are always nearby to answer the children’s questions, to help expand thinking and play or simply listen. On an ongoing basis, colors, letters, numbers, names, shapes and manners are covered through play in order to help children prepare for Kindergarten.
