A Typical Day

"Circle Time / Songs We have 2 circle times daily where we read stories, sing songs, do finger plays, and learn about letters and numbers

Free Play The children spend approximately 45 minutes in free play activities. This time is for learning to share, work cooperatively, learn to communicate with each other appropriately and many other social skills.

Arts and Crafts The children participate in a planned craft project or baking project daily as part of the Free Play time. There are also opportunities for children to use crayons, markers and other craft items to create projects when desired.

Snack The school provides a healthy snack daily for each child.

Outdoor play Weather permitting the children play on our large outdoor playground.

Music Twice a month the children are taught music by a music teacher in the classroom. They learn about instruments, rythmn, pitch and singing. "
