Daily Schedule

  Our day has a simple structure that gives children confidence and security.


8:00-9:30 - Children arrive and quickly settle into free play activities; painting, playing with manipulatives, blocks, dolls, trains, computers and friends.

9:30-10:00 - Snack Time - we provide a variety of healthy foods.  After snack we settle in for a few stories and calendar time.

10:00-10:30 - Music Time - four days a week our music teacher comes with her keyboard, songs and games.  On the fifth day, Miss Campbell gets us going with her own version of Musical Jamboree!


10:30-11:15 - Class Time - daily lessons, thematic units, stories, computers or special project.

11:15-12:00 - Recess - unless it is raining or extremely cold, we go outside and play in the yard.  We test our skills on the riding toys, monkey bars, rock-climbing wall or we make sand castles and play in the playhouse.

Fall Fun

12:00 - All morning children say goodbye.

12:00-12:30 - It's time for lunch.  We do not provide lunch, but we will heat or refrigerate lunches from home.

12:30-1:15 - Rest time.  We do not require that children sleep - some do and some don't.  For the children who do not sleep, we recommend that they bring in a coloring book or something small to keep them busy and quiet.  We usually listen to stories or musical tapes to help us relax.

1:15-2:15 - Special Class Time - Each day is devoted to one special activity.  We have specialists who come to teach these classes, so we are up and ready to go at 1:15.

Monday - Creative Dance Class, Tuesday - Wood Working Class, Wednesday - Art and Science Class, Thursday - Cooking Class, Friday - Spanish Class


2:15-2:30 - Afternoon snack

:30-3:00 - Recess

3:00 - All full day children say goodbye.


3:00-5:30 - This time of the day is scheduled by the children.  We adapt to changes in the weather and moods . . . it's spring, the sun is shining, let's play outside - or we stay inside and play with computers, dramatic play, build with blocks, arts and crafts and much more.

5:30 - All children say goodbye.
