Day in the Life

General School Mission

At Blue Goose Preschool, we work on peer relationships, letter and number writing and recognition, writing name, learning colors, storytelling and try to instill safety, individuality and a can-do-spirit.

A Typical Day

During of daily schedule, we start off with a circle time, then play at our various stations. We have a feely table, a construction zone, a dramatic play area, a snack area, an easel area, a art area, a poet/writing area, a library zone, a mastermind and game area. We then have clean up, last circle, outside time (where we have bikes, bals, hula hoops, wagons), inside to read a story, then its time for pick up.
