Children arrive and settle into one of the open centers.
9:00-9:20 - Group Time
Our first group time always includes songs, movement, and dance. In addition, we plan and discuss the "inquiry" we will be exploring as a class.
9:20-10:30 - Center Time
Center time is our main activity period that gives children a chance to work in many different group dynamics. All centers are open and children may choose areas of play. During this time I will lead a project in the art space or lead a small group activity.

Snack is provided each day.
10:45-11:00 - Story & Share Time
During this last group time we read a story together. The children are invited to recap their thoughts from our morning, ask questions, and we often reflect on our social emotional skills and what we are learning.

The children can choose from a variety of activities in our nature explore classroom.
11:45-12:45 - Lunch and our day ends

A garden located on the property is an important part of our curriculum giving children a chance to learn about the natural world.
