Sample Day

Staggered Arrival and sensory/art/gross motor stations! Children work on decision-making skills and mastery of fine and gross motor centers. Teacher-led small group and 1:1 activities are included. Supplies are kept as individual as possible and replenished after use, by our teachers.

Art Provocation! An age-appropriate and sensory-based art experience is included for those children that are interested. Others may read books or observe the activity. Sitting still is never “required” for our nearly and early twos, but coming together as a community is encouraged!

Meeting Time! Welcome ritual, the schedule for the day including hands-on visual aids, and our theme is discussed as well.

Snack! 1-2 children per table with snack brought from and fully prepped at home, with any allergies made known. Children’s hands are washed before and after each snack.

Free Play! Toys, manipulatives, mini-world objects, dress up and play kitchen. Children develop conflict resolution skills via our teachers’ simple and repetitive language and prompts.

Music! Lots of movement, live guitar, and instruments are included. Children develop executive skills and come together as a community through well-known as well as new activities.

Wrap up and goodbye song! Children always participate in a quiet lullaby or bubbles, and wrap up before our goodbye and happy reunion with grown-ups!
