Our Routine

We have nine class periods, and a nap time for kindergarteners.

Recess happens every day, even if our teachers have to bundle up to take your kids out.

We begin each day with Morning Meeting, a chance to gather together on the carpet, share news and talk about the day ahead. Math and reading, which is divided into two 50 min blocks, is often scheduled in the morning. Many afternoons we also schedule small group instruction (SGI) where the children are regrouped to work on specific challenges or extensions based on personal need.

Most days we end with choice time, where the children chose from block play, dress up, and other creative options. Classes include:

  • Reading

  • Yoga

  • Math

  • Dance

  • Art

  • Science

  • Music

  • Spanish

  • Gym

  • History

  • Geography
