Our daily program is flexible, with opportunities for exploration, experimentation, and discovery. Activities are varied and include art, dramatic play, music, science, manipulatives, reading, and outdoor play. Kids' Zone will limit screen time to ages three years old and up.
Children need a balance of indoor and outdoor play. Each child will have multiple opportunities throughout the day to play outside, weather permitting. Physical activity and outdoor play are important and beneficial for every child. it strengthens the heart, lungs, and bones, helps prevent cancer, regulates blood pressure and improves energy levels. We strive to provide at least one to three hours of outdoor play and at least 30 minutes of indoor physical activity for each age group.
Teachers will lead in structured physical play through puzzles, sorting activities and teacher-led kicking, jumping, marching, etc. Unstructured activities include building blocks, imaginary play, and play cars.
If extreme weather conditions prohibit or limit outdoor play, we will ensure physical activities indoors and in our classrooms.
