Our commitment to preparing children for the real world extends beyond the four walls of the classroom. Part of this is our daily dedicated Social Etiquette Training time, or SET.
Children are taught the skills needed for life in public including table manners, patience, hand hygiene and making healthy food choices through encouragement and following the lead of the classroom staff. It is important that as a valuable member of their class each child feels like they belong at the dinner table and they see any meal – whether breakfast, lunch or dinner – as an opportunity to connect with the other people in their life.
This all forms our view of the school as a community where the children are the caring and thoughtful citizens preparing to participate in society.
