Our enrollment consists of families with diverse cultural backgrounds. In relation, our curriculum emphasizes multi-cultural awareness. One component for our Pre-K collaboration includes the integration of Spanish and Sign Language lessons. We also emphasize Sign Language in our Toddler and Preschool classrooms. Furthermore, we explore various cultures and belief systems through engaging activities, foods and hands-on experiences. These lessons tie into the planning involved in creating a variety of multi-cultural themed meals that the children enjoy throughout the year.
