Classroom Wellbeing and Expectations

NaturePlay classroom is a safe space where students can make mistakes as they learn to navigate social interactions, conflict resolution, identifying emotions, and facilitate understanding. 

  • Educators use positive language to help students understand what we would like them to do rather than what not to do.

  • Educators understand that transitions may be hard some days. However, our school does not have the staffing for 1:1 educator attention for an extended period of the day.  (We maintain a 6:1 ratio).  Group safety requires that educators are available to the whole group. For the safety and wellbeing of your student, if they are unable to stay safely with the group, teachers will reach out to discuss how we can best support them.


 

Immunizations

Oregon law requires proof of immunizations or an exemption, for all children attending schools, preschools or child-care centers.  As a preschool, we are required to provide this information and the overall immunization rates to the Oregon Health Authority Immunization Program administered by the Benton County Health Department.  This information is due at the time of enrollment.
