When your child is in these early grades, you know your child is loved by our teachers. Classrooms are intentionally designed to nurture young learners through cozy reading spots, flexible seating options, and a focus on exploration. Students learn how to learn, engage confidently with teachers and peers, and build a strong foundation in literacy, mathematics, social-emotional skills, and critical thinking.
Our mixed age-group setting in these grades is the foundation for cultivating thinkers, leaders, and problem solvers. Students build skills and explore concepts through student-led inquiry, real-world challenges, and a connection to the community. We believe that social-emotional learning and character development should be built alongside foundational understandings of core academic concepts. With our Forest School-inspired program, we prepare children to be empathetic stewards for an environmentally conscious world with profound love and respect for nature and their wider community.
Maumee Valley teachers understand that no two minds learn in the same way. Class sizes are intentionally small so that teachers have time to develop a deep understanding of each child's needs and learning style.
