A typical day
A typical day at Sprouting Minds Preschool includes:
A generous amount of time for self-guided exploration and experimentation. Classroom centers include block play, dramatic play, two and three-dimensional art, sensory play, natural collections, reading, and science.
Materials and activities are tailored to the current group of children and change as the children’s need change.
Teacher-led indoor and outdoor explorations
Children participate in teacher-led group explorations both inside and outside. Indoor group exploration includes science experiments, instructions on how to use materials, baking, yoga, and circle time. Circle time always includes songs, stories, puppetry, dance, and reading. Outdoor group exploration includes cooperative games, nature hike trails, gardening, and gross motor development.
A healthy snack is offered each day, often with the children’s assistance. The group sits together to enjoy the meal, including teachers. Snack is self-served to encourage conversation, self-help skills, healthy choices, and community.
Outdoor Play, Rain or Shine
Children need to be dressed for the weather as each class spends time outside each day, rain or shine.
