A Typical Day

"Each day, the children begin with self-chosen activities in the various classroom centers. This is followed by a circle time where we do the pledge, calendar, weather, assign daily jobs, hear a story related to our topic of study, and get introduced to our planned small group activities (stations) for the day. After circle time, the children are invited to work on our theme and skill related projects with one of the teachers. After cleaning up from the projects, the children take turns preparing for snack and being class helpers. After snack we enjoy a quiet time where we share books.
The children participate in learning games, manipulative activities, rhythm games, music, large motor activities, and regularly scheduled computer activities. We try to go outside and play every day, weather permitting. The children enjoy our spacious and inviting playground. Throughout the year, special holiday events are planned involving both parents and children."
