Daily Schedule

 

8:45-9:00 - Arrival & Early Centers  
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.

10:30-10:45 - Snack  
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.

11:00-11:45 - Outdoor Play  
The children can choose from a variety of activities in our nature explore classroom.

11:45-12:45 - Lunch and our day ends
Lunch and additional activities often include cooperative games and more outdoor play.

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