Typical daily schedule

Activity Time Details
Check-in 10 minutes Parents drop off their children in the classroom. They can help children store backpacks and personal items in the child’s cubby space. 
Outdoor exploration 60 minutes Hands-on learning through outdoor exploration and discovery. Children will take part in 2 to 3 unique outdoor lessons throughout the week. Outdoor learning is typically done in small groups of 5 to 7 students and supports scientific thinking, language and literacy development, and mathematical concepts.
Transition time 10 minutes Transition from outdoors to indoors includes putting away outdoor clothing in cubbies and washing hands. This is a time to practice managing transitions with self-control while promoting responsibility and independence within each child.
Snack 10 minutes Children will eat snack with their small group once they have finished their outdoor time. Snacks are served family-style, which includes scooping from and passing a snack-filled bowl, and pouring from and passing a pitcher of water. This format encourages table manners and other social skills, as well as fine motor development. Reflection of class time is included with snack.
Interest areas 40 minutes Student choice time with options in dramatic play, writing, art, math and manipulatives, building blocks, science, music, and loose parts. Teachers work with kids in groups and one-on-one during this time and may include a small group activity to further practice a specific skill.
Circle time and wrap-up 20 minutes Review and reinforce the concepts learned throughout the day using large group discussion and a complementary story.
