Free Choice (90 minutes)
Children are free to visit our learning centers and play/explore the materials.  Teachers are actively engaged in facilitating this process and guiding social behavior.


Clean Up
A child flashes the lights to signal the transition to clean up.  Children are encouraged to take care of their school and be responsible for tidying up.

Science or Cooking (20 minutes)
We are all scientists and have questions.  We test our ideas in small groups and record our findings.  We use our senses and observation skills to work through a variety of experiments and recipes.
Snack
We are a peanut/nut free school.  We provide snack daily, always including a fresh fruit or vegtable.

Group Meeting (30 minutes)
The children gather in the reading corner to sing songs, recite poems, listen to a story and participate in guessing games.  The children practice their ability to attend and participate in a large group activity.

Outside Play (30 minutes)
We go outside year round.  If the weather doesn't cooperate, we do music and movement inside to exercise and release our energy.
