What is your student:teacher ratio?
3:1. Sequoia has two staff members and 6-7 parents working each day, with a daily attendance of 20-23 kids.

How do you deal with conflict?
All conflicts are solved by immediate discussion.
Can my child attend 5 days?
All new three year-olds start with three days. A fourth day may be added later in the year with the approval of the Director and Teacher. Only four-year-old children may attend five days.
Is admission on a first-come-first-serve basis?
No, there is an application process, and all applications will be considered after the submission
Do you provide a snack?
