    Learning Circle

    10:25—10:45

    Atelier Studio Time

    (The word Atelier means art studio or workshop in French.)

    Each child creates a creative fine art or project at their own pace. Considering some children finish later, this session can last until 10:50. Once a child finishes their project, they are instructed to use the potty if needed and to wash their hands. While other children are working on completing their projects, children that have finished can utilize the reading center or choose learning materials they can experiment with independently. We have carefully selected important learning tools to connect children with their learning environment.

    10:45—10:55

    Music & Movement

    Classes are facilitated by utilizing tools to get the children moving! We incorporate colorful scarves, chimes, multi-cultural music, instruments with collectively different sounds, and we use books with CD’s like “Pete the Cat”, to get children singing, moving, and dancing. This period is harvested to encourage children to listen to their environment and understand how they act and move within that environment.

    10:55—11:05

    Story Time

    Teachers choose selective reading materials to incorporate the “Theme of the Week”. Story time becomes an important way for teachers to help children develop strong listening skills and cultivates stronger relationships between teachers and children.

    11:05—11:30

    Dismissal/Recess Time/Parent Arrival

    Please Note: During the Winter Season, children need to attend with proper dress. When children are transitioning for dismissal/recess, having each child learn to dress themselves properly can be a longer process. We kindly ask parents to ensure teachers have time to help facilitate each child as we encourage them to independently dress themselves. Teachers help foster self-sufficiency, self-independency, and to build the life skills children will need when they transition into the Explorer Program then onto Kindergarten.
