Multi- Age Programming for 3, 4 and 5 year olds

SUMC Preschool offers multi-age class programming, in addition to single age classes.  Research on the benefits of an intentional multi-age class is plentiful.  The curriculum is more individualized,  child-centered, with children working at their own pace. The older children learn through leadership roles, and are challenged by the individualized instruction. Younger children learn from their peers, which is highly valuable.
