Our Approach to Learning


During these early years, children acquire a variety of important skills, knowledge and attitudes that will affect their ability to learn, their personal development, their relationships with others and their future participation in society. ACG Sunderland Preschool encourages children to see learning as both enjoyable and useful and provides a strong foundation for their future intellectual, physical and social development.

The ACG Sunderland Preschool is licensed for twenty-four children. The teacher/child ratio is one to nine. This ensures quality of care and education for all children in the Preschool environment.
