A Typical Day at in Four Year Old Kindergarten…
Before 8:00 – Early Arrivers
At the beginning of the day, we start in the preschool classroom downstairs. Children will have free play during this time.
8:00 – Free Play
The children have the opportunity to explore the classroom and socialize with their peers at this time.
8:30 – Breakfast
We offer breakfast from 8:30 to 9:00. For those children who already ate at home, free play is still available.
9:00 – Group Time
There are several parts to our group time. We have a discussion, usually based around our theme, read a story, and practice some of our favorite songs.
9:20 – Centers and Small Groups
During this time, we have small group times to focus on more individual learning. While this time is going on, the students will work on a variety of activities, including art projects, counting, sorting games, making books, fine motor skills, etc. They can also select from a variety of choices to encourage exploration and learning through play that go along with our thematic units.
10:30– Music and Movement
Music experiences are very important for children at this age. We will learn many new songs throughout the year. We have been working hard on adding sign language and movement to our songs.
10:45 – Outdoor Play
11:30 – Share Time/Mystery Reader on Friday
The children love bringing in items from home. Although we have plenty of toys to explore at school, it is nice to bring to share about once a week. This is done in conjunction with our Letter of the Week. On Fridays, our Mystery Reader will join us at this time. The children will be given clues throughout the early portion of the day and have had a chance to guess who is coming.
11:45 – Lunch
12:30 – Rest Time
For those staying for the afternoon, rest is a very important part of the day. We encourage resting for the first 45 minutes. For those not sleeping after that time period, we will work on one-on-one activities and quiet center choices.

3:00 – Centers and Snack
Students can again pick from the activities of the day. We will also have another opportunity for art.
