The following is a possible timeline for a preschool day. Every year the schedule is evaluated by the ECE to match the rhythms of all the children currently enrolled. Outdoor time is incorporated into the daily schedule, rain or shine (with the exception of the most severe weather).
Sign In, Drop Off and Outside Play – The children may start their day outside for exploratory play. We have plenty of sheltered areas allowing us to remain outdoors for all types of weather. Opportunities include nature explorations, outdoor art, tending the gardens, or playing on the outdoor equipment.
Snack Time – Healthy snack from home either inside or outside depending on time and weather.
Circle Time – A chance for the ECE to connect with the children through stories, songs, conversation, games, and any other special arrangements she has planned.
Art and Indoor Play – The children are provided with a variety of opportunities for arts and crafts as planned by the ECE. Indoor play explorations are based on the children’s interests. Examples include sensory play, dramatic and pretend play, blocks and building, puzzles, and books.
Lunch Time and Outdoor Play – Healthy lunch from home either inside or outside depending on weather and time.
