Typical Day

A typical day in the Toddler (2/3):

Open Free Play: After hand washing, children are invited to explore the stimulating activities in the classroom. Activities offered are painting, an art project, playdough, sensory table, blocks or trains, housekeeping/ dress-up area, water table, small motor skill activities, etc.

Circle Time:  A short teacher-directed group time consists of Finger-play flannel story/song and then a movement activity. It usually takes about 5 - 10 min. depending on the children's attention span and where they are in the school year.

Snack: After hand washing and potty breaks, a nutritiously dense snack is served as children sit at the table to dine and socialize with one another.

Outdoor/ Indoor Large Motor Time: This is when children are allowed to run freely, ride bikes (inside only), climb, play in the sandbox (outside only), play ball, roller skates, etc.  Exhilarating!

Good-Bye Time:  We end the day with a good-bye song and hugs.
