Roots & Wings class is a multi-age grouping of children, which involves all children participating in each unit of study or theme. Each child’s participation involves his/her individual level of interest and ability. Grouping may change, depending on continual observation of the interest and ability of the child and the current program. Children are encouraged and supported in their learning.
