Children are divided into groups (or rooms) based on age.

Room Age range
Purple Door 3 – 9 months
Blue Door 10 – 16 months
Green Door 17 – 23 months
Yellow Door 2 – 2.8 years
Orange Door 2.9 – 3.5 years
Red Door 3.6 years and up

These are approximations, which may vary slightly from year to year.

Ratios of grown-ups to children meet or exceed the guidelines set by EEC, the state regulatory agency for day cares.

Twice a year, parents meet with their child’s teachers for a formal conference at which teachers share their perceptions of the child’s growth over the year and parents share relevant information about their child. Special conferences can be arranged as the need arises.
