Here is a typical Village School day schedule. The times shown are not the same for everyone. For example, the playground is in use by one or more groups most of the day.

The activities shown are typical for preschool children, in general.

6:30 - 8:15 Arrival and breakfast in the gathering room (children eat as they come in or get hungry). Play in centers or watch TV, which, at this time of day, is a choice.

8:15 : 8:30 Go to individual classrooms

8:30 - 8:45 Circle time

8:45 - 10:00 Discovery Centers (incl. snack)

10:00 - 10:45 Outdoors

10:45 - 11:30 Story, Music, Games etc. and clean up.

11:30 - 12:30 Lunch

12:30 - 2:30 Nap

2:30 - 3:00 Toileting and snacks

3:00 - 4:00 Discovery Centers

4:00 - 4:45 Outside

4:45 - 5:30 Clean up, story, teacher-directed activities.

5:30 - 6:30 Gathering room, departure, centers and TV (the kids love to watch Wishbone on PBS)

Please note that in between all these neat activities we spend a lot of time on washing hands and faces, going to the bathroom, wiping noses--and all that good stuff.

When we walk down the central hall of the Center and hear lots of busy noise, we know that all is well.
