Our daily schedule is consistent enough to provide a sense of security for the preschoolers, yet flexible enough to take advantage of unexpected opportunities for learning as they arise.

Teachers will adapt the length of an activity to accommodate the needs and interests of the group.

Engaging Activities & Familiar Routines

A Warm Up Project is set up by teachers to welcome students each morning. Projects are hands-on, engaging and designed to introduce new skills. The activities could include play dough, puzzles, sewing cards, light table play, science experiments, games, and a variety of explorations with art materials.

During Explore Time children might paint, sculpt with clay, make prints, tinker, experiment at the sand and water table, build with blocks, act out a story with puppets, bake with a teacher or care for the classroom by watering plants and sweeping.

Our Community Circle may include activities such as music, dance, yoga, a variety of children’s literature, foreign language exposure, science explorations, math games or a visitor sharing an interesting object or experience.

Outdoor Time becomes an extension of our classroom to provide opportunities for movement, discovery, play and investigation of the natural world. All activities are designed to allow children to build confidence and challenge their emerging abilities.

Spuntino (Italian for “little lunch”) A nutritious snack “spuntino” will be provided daily. Eating together offers a special opportunity to build community and cultivate healthy habits. Mealtime is not just for providing necessary energy but is a social activity, nourishing body, mind and spirit.
