Typical Preschool Day
Do mom or dad need to be at work? Families are welcome to sign up for Before Care—it begins at 7:40 and is available to both Preschool/PreK and Elementary students. This is a fun and relaxing way for students to begin their mornings.
8:30am! It’s time for school! Preschool/PreK parents have the option to either drop off their students in car line or walk them to their class. We hang our totes on our hooks and begin our morning playtime while we wait for all of our friends to arrive. We have lots of choices—we can play with our friends, read books, color, or do tabletop activities.
It’s Circle-Time: We sing our Welcome Song, log the weather, update our classroom calendar, share our morning devotions and get the day moving with some fun preschool songs!
We love when our teachers read to us–they pick the BEST books that are related to our weekly theme! We also enjoy journaling—it is an important part of our day where we spend some time writing and drawing about how our theme applies to life.
Snack Time: Each week a classroom friend provides a snack for us all to share. Note: We are a “Peanut Safe” Preschool—no peanuts or tree nuts allowed.
11:30 Dismissal—It’s time to say goodbye for today to our Preschool 3 and PreK AM friends.
Recess and Lunch Bunch! Students bring their own lunches and we eat together in the PreK lunchroom. On the first and third Thursdays, students have the option of ordering pizza for lunch. Pizza lunch includes pizza, a healthy snack (either fruit or vegetable) and 2 cookies.
12:30 Dismissal—PreK AM friends who opt to stay for Lunch Bunch leave for the day.
Rest Time—Time to take a break and unwind. Students keep mats or sleeping bags at school so they can relax their minds and bodies.
As we finish our day, we share a goodbye rhyme and pack up for our 3pm dismissal.
