Daily Schedule / Routine
We follow the daily routine that is adapted to the children's interests and needs. We believe this well-designed routine will provide children a secure,
predictable and comfortable environment to learn. In this way, children can also establish a stronger sense
of control, and their self-esteem and confidence will be fostered as well.
08:00-09:00 Arrival/Greeting and Free-Choice Play
Parents and teachers can talk about the child's physical/emotional status of the day that would help teachers provide individual cares for the child. Children and teachers greet each other in both languages.
09:00-09:30 Indoor Activity (Project Time)
According to the monthly themes, teachers plan and scaffold children to experience different activities, such as making art craft, decorating the classroom, or learning safety education.
09:30-09:40 Clean Up
Children take the responsibility to put the toys and materials back to their places after using them.
09:40-10:10 Circle Time
Teachers develop different activities (sharing their ideas, physical exercising, singing and dancing...) to enhance children's interests of learning.
We follow a food program and prepare fresh, healthy snacks for children.
10:30-11:30 Outdoor Activity
Children need enough outdoor play time to foster their muscle development and expend their energy. We provide sand/water, art, music, dramatic play areas as well as large climbing structures for children to explore and learn.
11:30-11:40 Outdoor Clean Up
Children clean up the sand box, put toys back, park bicycles, and clean up themselves too!
11:40-12:00 Story Time/Transition to Lunch
We use Chinese to read storybooks for children and encourage children to share their experiences and feelings about the stories.
We design children's menu according to their daily nutrition needs. We encourage children to eat on their own.
Naps are important to children's physical and emotional development. We encourage children to take naps everyday, so they can have enough energy and better mood to learn in the afternoon.
3:00-3:20 Clean Up/Toileting
Children learn to clean up their beddings and toilet after naps.
3:20-3:40 Circle Time
We usually sing Chinese songs and dance in the outdoor classroom during afternoon circle time. Children enjoy learning Children songs by dancing together.
To meet the requirement of the food program, we offer children different grains and fruit in the afternoon.
4:00-4:50 Outdoor Activity (Project Time)
Children can choose their favorite outdoor areas to play. Some of them can finish their art projects in our outdoor classroom.
4:50-5:00 Outdoor Clean Up
Children clean up the toys and materials and wash their hands.
5:00-6:00 Indoor Quiet Play/Pickup Time
We come back in the house, reading, drawing, playing with puzzles and play dough; and, wait for pickup.
