Day in the Life

General School Mission

My First School want to establish an atmosphere of fun, creativity, and curiosity. We want to create a place where each child's individuality is cherished and encouraged. Our center will provide a stimulating enviorment that encourages positive social-emotional growth, cognative and physical development. Our center and its staff understand the importance of fostering an enviorment of trust, autonomy and initiative. We believe these are the first building blocks of learning...

A Typical Day

Our schedule stays the same, but our activites vary to accomodate the children. We use transition songs to go from one center or activity to another.
