Our Routine

Our Routines are Crafted To Help Foster the Growth and Development of your Child

The routine for both morning and afternoon sessions, and the extended day kindergarten program is composed of a three-hour work cycle, outdoor play time, and lunch or snack break. The following breakdown will provide you with a general overview of the sessions. Please note that this will only serve as a guideline and some changes made be necessary depending on the dynamics of the classroom. We strive to provide the children with the most care and attention and making adjustments that will benefit the children.
