Multi-age classrooms

​Multi-age learning has been a feature of many small schools out of necessity for many years.  The term ‘multi-age’ in its simplest form refers to a class comprised of children of different ages intentionally grouped for learning.  Multi-age classrooms provide many desirable social and learning experiences as well as flexibility. 

What we aim to achieve through Multi-age Classrooms:

  • To create a positive and supportive social context for learning.

  • To develop and promote attitudes and skills in cooperation and shared responsibilities.

  • To promote self-motivated learning and achievement.

  • To promote the development of each child by catering for individual difference at a variety of levels.

  • To develop creativity, risk taking, problem solving and thinking.

  • To promote continued growth and development in children through the extended time period spent within the multi-age classroom structure.

  • To promote the development of the skills required for lifelong learning.
