School Notes

  • We currently have two mixed-age classrooms serving children 2.5-6 years old, with an AMI-trained teacher and assistant in each class. We also have an AMI-trained outdoor teacher, so that the children may choose to work outdoors for parts of their day. 
  • We invite interested families to schedule a tour of the school followed by a classroom observation. Please contact us by email or phone for more details.
