Children in Prekindergarten go to school two full days a week Tuesday/Thursday or Monday/Wednesday for the 2017/18 school year.
The rhythm of the day is very important for all students especially the Prekindergarten and Early Childhood, both ages follow the same rhythms.
The early childhood students spend time outside in the morning, main lesson, snack (which they prepare with the teacher), nature studies/handwork/watercolor painting, lunch, story time, quiet time and then outdoors again before they go home for the day.
The grades have greeting/circle time, main lesson and snack and Math/Reading block in the morning. Their afternoons vary, including lunch/outdoors, nature studies, Spanish, movement, handwork, Practical arts, music/strings, Gardening and guidance.
The children attend school from 8:20 am to 2:45 pm.
