Each day there are a variety of activities structured for independent work time, small group and large group activities. Students participate in their classroom community. Each child assists teachers in planning the next lessons or themes, by sharing their interests and following their curiosities during work time, asking questions and having conversations with other children and teachers. Throughout each day there are times children guide their own learning, times teachers are working independently with a student or group of students, and times when children work together in a partnership or group. Sweet Beginnings encourages teachers to seek additional training, certifications, and continuing education. We strive to demonstrate the value of lifelong learning to our students and serve as the role models they need to become lifelong learners themselves.
