Kindergarten Schedule

Outdoor Kindergarten for the 2011-2012 School Year

Our daily rhythm emphasizes the order of events in our consistent routine. Children find comfort and security knowing this predictable sequence. Our four-hour school day allows the teachers and children time to fully explore areas of interest and to share a lunch time meal together in addition to our afternoon snack.

  • Free Choice Outdoor Play
  • Picnic Lunch
  • Preset Art Activity (Art or Journal Activity)
  • Daily Nature Walk (to garden and wetland)
  • Snack in our “secret spot”
  • Circle Time (drink hot tea and share observations from our secret spots.)
