Our Daily Schedule

A typical day consists of both planned and unplanned events. A daily schedule is provided to help guide learning experiences and give children the security of knowing what will happen next.

Our day begins with:

  • A.M. Greeting / Small Group Activity – Children enjoy playing as they anxiously await the arrival of their friends.
  • Music & Movement – To encourage listening skills, language, and literacy. The children enjoy a variety of nursery rhymes, poems, kid aerobics, kid yoga, & dance.
  • Circle Time (Morning Meeting) – To include our welcome song, recognition of the calendar to determine the day, month, & date of the year, the weather, storytime, and whole group instruction to explore topics of study and increase language & literacy.

  • Learning Centers – Children work in their learning centers and can build social skills, problem-solving skills, fine motor development, creativity, mathematical thinking, language & literacy. (During this time, children are called into small groups to participate in one on one activities to increase learning skills).
  • Gross Motor – Active indoor/outdoor games & play to increase physical development and exercise.
  • Creative Arts – Exploration, and use of a variety of materials for tactile experiences and self-expression.
  • Lunch – Happy healthy eating habits are encouraged and allow children the opportunity to socialize amongst friends.
  • Nap Time – Everyone has a rest period. Children who can’t sleep rest quietly on their mats. As the children awake, we prepare for clean-up time.
  • Circle Time (Afternoon Meeting) – To include science and math activities to increase discovery and exploration, problem-solving, fine motor, self-help skills, and story time.
  • Afternoon Snack / P.M. Greeting / Indoor-Outdoor Play – A light afternoon snack is provided as children prepare for dismissal and enjoy small group activities as friends depart at staggered times.
