Daily Routine

Children Working with Letters

Each day includes:

  • Child initiated outdoor play using materials designed for learning
  • Child initiated indoor play including special activities that change regularly

Snack is served buffet style and children often assist in preparing snack. They serve themselves and clean up after themselves.

Teachers provide planned activities for small groups. Each child participates in small group with the same children over a period of time. This helps to build collaboration and communication skills with a variety of peers, including children that the child might not self-select as playmates. In addition, small groups include children at a variety of developmental and skill levels, to children’s opportunities to learn from and help one another.

Each day there are adult led large group activities that support curriculum themes and concepts and help children explore and extend group participation skills.

Teachers meet before and after each session for planning and reflection.
