Welcome – Before entering the classroom, the students will hang up their belongings and put on their indoor shoes. They will be greeted by a teacher and move directly to the circle area. Note: Classroom A students put their snack into cubbies inside the classroom and Classroom B students leave their snack inside their backpacks.

Circle Time – Calendar activities, games, stories, songs and discussions promote development in language, number skills and social interactions.

Centers – Children are free to circulate among the choice of centers and activities set out for them. They are encouraged and guided in cooperative play throughout this time. Art is an integral part of an early childhood program and a specific art project will be offered each day. Students will be given a variety of materials, and instruction on how to use those materials appropriately, but there will be very little emphasis on the finished product. Rotating centers such as the sand/water table, dramatic play areas, science and discovery, building, puzzles and games, and the story corner will provide rich opportunities for global development.

Snack – Please ensure your child has a nutritious snack each day. This is an important social time where quiet conversation and polite table manners are encouraged.

Gym or Outdoor Play – Physical education is a fun and busy time! There will be a combination of instructional time and free play with the equipment provided.

There will be scheduled days for:
· creative movement
· outside play
· bike riding (bring your helmet!)

Class Meeting – Each class will wind up with a short discussion of the day’s events and plan for the future. At dismissal time the children will stay in the classroom with the teacher until an adult arrives.
