Daily Activities and Nutrition
We build warm, welcoming, and supportive classrooms for children of all abilities, backgrounds, and experiences.
Understanding how children grow and change during their first five years can help you give your child a great start.
Our incredible teachers are here to offer the safest place and most inspiring learning environment for you preschooler. Your child will practice language, math, science, Spanish, and social skills through hands-on learning and playtime.
Building brain power and strong bodies
Preschoolers start to do science experiments and learn early math concepts. This helps them build their critical thinking skills, memory, and focus. They stay healthy by playing outdoors, hopping and dancing inside, and learning about nutritious foods!
Making friends and expressing feelings
Children in our classroom are constantly building on their new skills—and that includes the ones needed for making friends and communicating feelings. We help preschoolers talk about feelings, show them how to resolve conflicts, and support them as they make friends.
Reading books and learning to write
We get preschoolers ready for kindergarten by reading lots of books, identifying rhyming words, and writing. Singing songs and playing games help them notice similar sounding words.
Creating art and playing pretend
They’ll build lots of self-confidence by expressing themselves creatively through painting, drama, music, storytelling, and writing. We give them the tools they need to create and then watch them explore. And teachers are always nearby with words of encouragement!
Arrival and breakfast
8:00 A.M – 9:30 A.M.
Children play quietly and eat breakfast. As they finish their meal, they can play however they choose at our learning centers until most children have arrived and are finished eating.
9:30 A.M. – 10:00 A.M.
The real start to our day begins when we come together as a group to welcome each other and talk briefly about the day's planned events. We will also do things like read a book out loud or sing a song!
10:05 A.M. – 10:45 A.M.
Activity centers are an important part of our classrooms, and usually involve small-group activities. Your child will do things like play with blocks, experiment with creative arts, engage in dramatic play, read, do age-appropriate math or science activities, or write.
10:45 A.M. – 11:00 A.M.
They’ll have a healthy snack.
11:00 A.M. – 12:30 P.M.
It’s time to go outside! Outdoor time can also be part of our daily themed activity.
12:30 P.M. – 1:00 P.M.
Time to wash our hands, help set tables, and get ready to eat lunch!
Getting ready for rest time
1:00 P.M. – 1:15 P.M.
We all help clean up from lunch and get ready to rest.
1:15 P.M. – 2:45 P.M.
Ssshh … it’s quiet time. Many children will nap, but as they wake up (or if they never quite get to sleep), they can select different quiet activities, such as looking at books or drawing.
Transition to afternoon Activities

We all help clean up to and get ready for P.M. activities

Kids come back to activity centers to play and explore on their own, and also do a theme-related activity led by a teacher.
4:00 P.M. – 5:00 P.M.
Every afternoon, we gather as a group to talk about the day's events as well as any special events planned for the following day. Other activities could include a read-aloud or a song.
It’s time to go outside! They might play on their own or participate in a group activity.
Activity centers and pick-up
5:00 P.M. – CLOSE
It’s time for pick-up! After a busy day together, children are given the space and time to explore and play in the learning centers on their own.
Every day, children sit down to a meal, where they eat healthy fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains—never juice or fried foods.
