The ratio of about 21 kids makes the environment interactive but somewhat challenging for the teacher. I wish there were teacher assistants that would help the teacher with the learning of the children and reduce the workload for the teacher.
The language that these students have been taught to support getting along with one another is the best I've seen in early childhood classrooms. When my daughter is telling stories at the dinner table, she is articulate describing how the children interacted with each other during the day. Even in the middle of a toddler meltdown, my daughter is able to describe her emotions and needs thanks to the language she has developed at school.
