7:30 a.m. - Breakfast is served. Fuel for the day ahead. *
8:30 a.m. - Let the learning begin! Our Pre-K and Preschool children gather to work on our weatherboard and calendar. From there, we'll break into smaller groups and dive into age appropriate worksheets, crafts, science projects etc. Go ahead and invest in some heavy duty magnets, because your child is going to bring home plenty to hang on the fridge!
11:00 a.m. - Circle Time. Out of our groups and together again, we'll spend an hour on social activities like show and tell, phonics, or situational role play. Occasionally we'll bust out the parachute or hold a book swap. Every 3rd Friday is cooking day, and yes, you can have some leftovers.
12:00 p.m. - It's lunch time! By now we've really worked up an appetite. *
12:30 p.m. - Our tummies are full and the tables are clean. It's time to grab a stuffed animal and settle in for a story. Though there is a focus here on reading comprehension, this is a great opportunity for the kids to wind down after a busy morning.
1:00 p.m. - Nap time. The silence is nice, right?! While the kids snooze, we usually spend a bit of time uploading pictures and video of our morning activities to Facebook.
3:00 p.m. - Blinds open. Sunlight in. Let's wake up and have a snack! *
3:30 p.m. - From here on out it's a bit of a mixed bag. If the weather cooperates you might find us outside taking advantage of all the activities we've managed to cram into 1.5 acres. There's a full sized playground and a pool. We've got a sandbox and a bounce house. We might have more bikes than the local bike shop. How does a fort with its own patio sound? If we're stuck inside, the kids have access to an entire room filled floor to ceiling with toys and games. If your child is at all tech savvy, we've got two stations with tablets where they can enjoy some educational apps. Sometimes, it's nice to make some popcorn and watch a movie.
