At the Preschool, each class is taught by one Lead Teacher, supported by Assistants. The number of staff in each class depends on the number of students and the learning needs of children. 

Our program model uses integrated therapies. The Speech/Language Specialists, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants work in collaboration with the teaching team to provide therapy services throughout the school day. Most therapy takes place in the classroom setting, with the therapists working along side the teachers. All children benefit from the presence of the additional staff in class. It enhances the learning for all and increases the staff-to-student ratio.
