the vision of a kensington classroom
The classroom is at the heart of the Kensington School experience. Children enjoy a beautiful, exciting, child-centered classroom that encourages them to develop to their fullest potential.
As our building designs have evolved through the years, the Kensington classroom blueprint has progressed as well. Today, a distinct set of criteria is central to what we consider to be the cornerstones of our classroom design philosophy.
physical elements of classroom design
The spacious classrooms are bright and airy with natural light spilling through our oversized windows.
A self-contained plan offers many advantages and is an integral component of our room design:
multi-tiered play levels
furniture and interest center placement
Visitors always comment on the beauty of Kensington’s furnishings. The warmth of wood, quality workmanship, and the rich, colorful assortment of learning materials combine to present a very appealing environment.
Research clearly indicates that a caring, knowledgeable teacher is a critical element in a superior early childhood classroom. Kensington Schools offer a very desirable teaching environment for new staff.
Each new teaching applicant is carefully screened. After meeting with senior leadership, applicants must be interviewed and approved by the owners before they may be hired.
New staff receives continuous support from school directors and supervisory personnel. Skillful teacher trainers instill in each new Kensington staff member a clear understanding of the rich components of our proven curriculum. Seminars explain the time-tested Kensington protocols concerning safety and supervision, sanitation and classroom care.
