Both work times of the day are punctuated by art activities, song, whole group activities, individual and/or small group lessons, free choice and targeted skill-building times. There may be a prolonged period of outdoor play or two shorter periods of outside time. Kindergarteners will have special programing to be mindful of their needs as rising 1st graders while still being alert to the sensitivities of children in the first plane of development.
This sketch is only intended to serve as a general guideline to the ebb and flow of typical days – birthdays, holidays, and other special events may also punctuate the landscape!
