Daily Rhythm

Daily Rhythm

Our daily rhythm is continuously fine-tuned to support your child’s physical needs and intellectual growth. Below is a sample of a Preschool day:

Time Activity
8:oo am Doors open; families and children are welcomed to the school day
8:30 am Greetings, songs, and sharing in our morning circle
9:00 am Your child eats a snack brought from home and after cleaning up chooses one of the free play and discovery stations (the science table, the theater corner, the art center, the blocks corner, etc.)
10:15 am In the daily learning circle, the class looks together at a specific animal, learns a new finger play, sings some favorite songs, plays a number or letter game, etc.
11:00 am Time to put on our gear. It’s drizzling outside but we love fresh air too much to let a little rain stop us!
Noon Your child washes her hands, gets her lunchbox, and sits down to eat and talk together with teachers and friends.
12:45 pm Reading circle is time for dim lights, cozy blankets, and a favorite story in German
1:00 pm It is quiet time. Your child pulls her mat and blanket into a favorite nook. Some children sleep, other rest quietly and read a book or draw.
2:00 pm Children enrolled until 2:00 pm say Auf Wiedersehen and get picked up. Those enrolled until 4:00 pm join the After School Program for an afternoon circle time followed by free play (craft projects, puzzles, games, etc).
2:45 pm After cleaning up, all children get their lunch box from their after school cubby and sit down for an afternoon snack.
3:00 pm Your child takes part in an extra-curricular class taught by outside providers (Yoga, Taekwondo, Inventor Mentor, Dance, Music). Preschool students have a class 2x per week and Kindergarten students 4x per week. The classes rotate throughout the school year so that your child has the opportunity to try each one. Students not participating in a class play outside on the playground – rain, snow, or shine!
4:00 pm Some children get picked up while others stay for the extended After School Program until 5:00 or 6:00 pm. This time is open for the children to pick what they would like to do. They can choose from free play, weekly cooking projects, and activities in our gym.
