Play, Explore, & Learn

"Play is the highest form of research.'' —Albert Einstein

Basic Daily Schedule

Open – 9:00am
Arrival & morning snack

Upon arrival, children are greeted and offered a morning snack. As they finish eating, they can choose to read books, do puzzles, or play at a learning center until most children have arrived and are finished eating. Before-care students may arrive as early as 7:30 a.m.

9:10am – 9:25am
Morning Circle

The official start to our day is "Circle Time." When we come together to welcome friends, we notice and count the calendar, observe the weather, talk about our learning theme, and look ahead to that day's fun activities!

9:30am – 10:00am
Table Time

After introducing the day's theme in our morning circle together, we then dive into "Table Time," with teacher-led table activities including but not limited to art projects, skills worksheets, or fun crafts, which coincide with the learning theme.

10:00am – 10:30am
Activity centers

Activity centers are an important part of learning as they engage students in small-group social interactions. Cooperative play is taught through rotational play partnering and side-by-side imaginative activities such as building blocks, doll play, shopping center, dress-up, puppets, and more!

10:30am – 11:00am
Outdoor play

It’s time to go outside (weather permitting)! Little ones play on their own, using their imaginations and building friendships through cooperative play.

11:00am – 11:30am
Bible Lesson

Getting into God's Word! Following an age appropriate Bible curriculum plan, students will be introduced to the Bible, learn daily lessons from it, complete corresponding crafts or Bible themed worksheets, and "talk to God" together in class prayer!

11:30am – 11:45pm
Dance Party

Daily "dance party"! Utilizing various worship songs for kids as well as modern favorites (like Baby Shark and The Floor is Lava), each day we will close our morning with a fun and engaging music and movement focus!

11:45am – 12:00pm

Time to wash our hands and get ready to eat lunch!

12:30pm – 12:45pm

Everyone helps to clean up from lunch and get ready to rest.

12:45pm – 2:45pm
Rest time

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.

2:45pm – 3:00pm
Dismissal prep

Teachers turn on lights and rouse students for restroom breaks, then help them gather their belongings for dismissal.

3:00pm – 3:15pm
Group time & pick-up

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 while parents come for pick-up!

3:15pm – 3:30pm
Afternoon snack

Those children remaining for after-care will enjoy a nutritious snack like apples and seed butter.
