Typical Program Schedule
The program provides an opportunity for active cooperative play both indoors and outdoors, quiet creative activities, and dramatic play, intellectual growth through experimentation and investigation, music participation, books, stories, as well as experiences in the community.
Working with preschoolers, we are aware of their basic needs. They need a friendly teacher that provides a safe secured environment to learn and play. They need an opportunity to explore and understand their world, freedom and physical activity to help in developing social opportunities with their peers.
The program time can be flexible, but the order of activities generally remains the same. Children excel when there is a sense of peace, sequence, order and flexibility in the schedule to allow for spontaneous and unpredictable events that add joy to a day.
