Diving Deep

Children in the 3-5 Pod are ready to dive more deeply into learning and adventure. They tackle multidisciplinary projects collaboratively and individually, and relish sharing creations and discoveries with their peers, teachers, and families. The 3-5 Pod Teaching Team prioritizes building children’s confidence and fostering a life-long love of learning. Each year in the 3-5 Pod is a mix of treasured traditions and new units concocted by our wizard educators to meet students’ needs, speak to their interests and questions, and offer ample opportunities for challenge and play.
