A Typical Day

"A. Our day begins with exciting child-directed learning centers consisting of:
1. math manipulatives
2. science tables
3. easel painting
4. art experiences & projects
5. computers
6. library corner
7. sand table
8. playhouse and dress up corner
9. block area
10. language arts area
Teachers guide your child through all areas until clean up time.
B. Circle time:
This is our group time together where we encourage language-based learning.
It is used to elaborate on specific areas of discussion and reinforce new concepts. Experiments, felt boards, puppets and many different creative mediums are utilized.
C. Snack time:
A healthy snack is provided mid morning and afternoon.
D. Music and movement time:
All children need to move and enjoy music. We provide many tools to enjoy that special time, i.e., parachutes, hoops, balls, beanbags, instruments, scarves. Tapes and CD's are all used to create the most exciting musical experiences!
E. Playground Time:
We feel that outdoor playtime is very important for children. Our three, fully equipped playgrounds provide exercise and activities to help develop motor skills.
