Classroom Groupings and Transitions

All of our classrooms meet or exceed requirements for staffing, space, and ratios established by the DC Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) and encouraged by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

Tiny Findings enrolls once a year (twice a year for infants), and transitions to the next class occur center-wide in late August. Children move to the next class with their cohort, keeping children and families together for their entire time at TF.

For more information, see our admissions and transitions policy.
