Our Daily Rhythm
Our Nature-Based Program for Preschool Aged Children
Monday - Wednesday
9:00AM* - 2:00PM*
In light of COVID-19 and new safety protocols, in fall 2020, we will transition to a fully outdoor Forest School program. We are excited about this change! We are in process of creating our new daily rhythm that is a variation of the one below.
For now, we are seeing two changes. (1) We will not offer cooking as we did last year. (2) It may be safest to schedule sliding arrivals and pick-ups. That is half the class arriving between 8:45-9:00am and the other half arriving between 9:00-9:15am. Pick-up 1:45-2:00pm and 2:00-2:15pm.
