What is a typical day like?
Children arrive daily between 8 a.m. - 8:30 a.m. This is an informal work time while we wait for all the children to arrive. By 9 a.m. the classrooms begin their morning meetings. This is an important time for children and teachers to talk and set the framework for the day. All the classrooms have a work period, snack, and a second circle. The children go outside for at least 30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes in the afternoons. In warmer weather many of the classroom activities are moved outside.
