Preschool Schedule

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 noon meal together in addition to our morning snack.
