We know that consistent routines help children know what to expect each day. The adventures during a preschool day are never lacking, so the schedule does change. Below is a suggested schedule of activities and meals we seek to follow each day. Please make sure your child is dropped-off and picked-up by your contracted time. We plan our day/activities according to the children that will be here. If you are more than 15 minutes late to pick your child up at the end of their scheduled time, you will be charged the late fee for the day.
