Activities

Flexibility in the daily schedule is desired, and no two school days will be exactly alike.

A typical day starts with an art project as children arrive.

The class then gathers in the circle area for approximately 15 minutes of activities directed by the teacher and the assist parents. These activities vary by age group and include storytime, reading, singing, playing games, making music, pretending and dramatics, and sharing conversation.

This is followed by 45 minutes of free play. During free play, available activities include: a sensory-play table (filled with sand, dried beans, etc.), kitchen, cars, games, costumes and puppets available both upstairs and in the basement for large motor play. Free play is followed by cleanup time before an additional circle time.

The daily schedule includes time for a snack, and for outdoor play when weather permits.

Field Trips

Your child’s class may make field trips to various places of interest during the year. These trips are planned by the teacher, who welcomes suggestions for field trip locations. Due to state seat-belt laws, parents are responsible for dropping off and picking up their child/children at the field trip location. Information on times, locations, and maps will be provided prior to the trip. Every attempt is made to hold field trips as close to the usual class times as possible, but it may sometimes be necessary to alter times to take full advantage of the field trip content.
