UHMCC @ Kūhiō

Our Kūhio classroom is a mixed aged group (ages 3-5) of up to 18 children.  This grouping establishes a mixed ability format that encourages every child to work at their own pace, in their own way, and to their individual potential.  The classroom focuses on creative expression and exploration of environmental issues.  Our playground space also may be shared with SPED preschoolers.

Our classroom phone number is (808) 253-9927
