Fall 2019 Registration Now Open


IN THE ROUTINE

Our morning or afternoon routine begins with parents, grandparents or nannies saying good-bye at the gate. The sand box is a comforting, non-intimidating place for some children to start off – others may choose to build, paint, draw, or look at books on the couch. As the children settle and the tone of the room stabilizes, our staff will help children get acquainted with materials and daily projects. 

Children are welcome to choose between gluing, water-play, the dough table, print-making, easel painting and the block area. They can move freely between the various activities set up for them. We will guide them if they are having difficulty. 

Near the end of the program we gather by the piano for a healthy snack such as banana, red pepper, or cucumber. We sing, jump, dance, play instruments and perhaps use props that the children have made themselves such as masks, crowns, wings, or hobby horses. We are regularly joined by a musician during circle time who introduces the children to instruments like the piano, violin, and guitar. To learn more about our program, visit the following page.

We wind down before dismissal with a story or felt-board book.
