A TYPICAL DAY

A typical day in both classrooms centers on two large blocks of playtime: one indoors and one outdoors. Before and after these individual choice activities, groups come together to share ideas, songs, plays and stories. Between noon and 1 p.m., children group together for lunch, circle and story time.

HOURS      

Monday - Friday: 8:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Extend care is available until 5:30 pm every day 

 

The REd Room 

The class can enroll up to 20 students

The Red Room is for students aged 3-4. Most students will advance to the Blue Room the following year, though some younger 3 year olds will repeat an extra year in the Red Room until they are developmentally ready to advance with an older peer group.

The Blue Room

The class can enroll up to 20 students

The Blue Room is for students aged 4-5. Most students will advance to kindergarten the following year, though some students will remain for a transitional kindergarten year due to age cutoffs at the public/private elementary school.

Curriculum

Curriculum is based on ideas which emerge from the children as well as topics chosen for their intrinsic appeal, timeliness or value to the children. Parents will be appraised of these topics by way of a daily journal, newsletters and documentation on the walls of the classrooms.

Parents are encouraged to participate in group work in the classroom as well as dialogue about topics of interest.

Every effort is made to make the curriculum non-biased with the diversity of the group particularly reflected.
