Crossing Borders International Preschool supports multi-aged classrooms as part of its academic language instruction. After several years of teaching different ages in the same classroom, we came to prove that students in our mixed ages’ classes learn successfully. While our youngest students can be challenged with a program that is advance for their age, the older students are supported in a learning environment that gives them confidence to develop their unique strengths.
Multi-aged classrooms help students build a sense of belonging in a small classroom community since they remain in the same class for a longer period. The students are exposed with students of all levels of language fluency and cognitive skills, which helps them feel inspired from each other and they get to know each other better.
At Crossing Borders, we offer the flexibility to learn languages in both same-age classrooms and multi-aged classrooms. We are proud to say that all our students flourish in all of the languages we teach and they have the same opportunities to learn and master their social, emotional and cognitive skills.
