Sample Daily Lesson Plan
Each day when your child arrives at school he or she will have a chance to explore our outdoor classroom areas. Our playground is set up to offer many different activities that help our children explore the theme for the week.
When we meet for Morning Meeting and Little Learners Small Groups, we introduce the theme for the week. Each theme last between one and two weeks. The theme is thoroughly discussed and every child is given ample opportunity to manipulate, explore and create with materials within the planned environment. Teachers will guide and assist in the play and let your child learn at her own pace. During this time, your child's teacher will practice with letters, numbers, shapes, and colors. All lessons and activities are designed to meet the child at their specific level and areas of interest.

We also focus on our theme, in this case, planting in the garden, in our outdoor classrooms. Our children will have a chance to grow seeds, monitor each plant's progress, and transplant their seeds to our outdoor garden. We love to use our veggies for snack time and the children enjoy eating what they have grown.
