Welcome to the Koala Class! In the Koala class students are introduce to letter and number formation using a combination of Handwriting Without Tears and Montessori Materials such as the sand paper letters/numbers and sand tray. Students also learn phonetic sounds and have access to a variety of fine motor activities to strengthen their pincer grasp. We also incorporate art, STEAM, sensory play, dramatic area and other hands-on activities to create a child-led learning environment. The Koalas has is an introduction to academics with lesson plans that are modified to fit the needs and interests of the children.
