Introduction Preschool (9:00 a.m. -12:30 p.m.)
In an effort to prepare our two year olds for their preschool years, we try to break up their morning routines into small scheduled increments. Circle time, art time, and story time are integral parts of their schedule as well as singing, letters, counting, colors, and shapes. During this time a healthy snack is offered and outdoor playtime is available.
Lunch-Nap (12:30pm- 3:00pm)
As noon approaches, our little ones grow hungry and tired. Our meals are always prepared to be both balanced and nutritious. After filling their bellies, its time to rest. Each child will be able to nap on their individual cots for 2-3 hours.
Child's Choice- Parent Pick Up (3:30 pm -6:00 pm)
Every afternoon will begin with another healthy snack. There will be free classroom play and a chance to socialize with other children. More outdoor playtime is available until your little one is picked up.
