Little Green Dragons

For children 3.5 to 4.5 years of age.


The Little “Green” Dragons classroom is painted a luscious lime which represents nature, health, and our eco-system. It creates a calm and relaxed learning atmosphere. Green can also filter negativity, which puts students and teachers at ease and into a positive state of mind.


The color green promotes a sense of peace, harmony, renewal, youth and generosity.
