Daily Schedule

creating a rhythm through play and exploration

Our rhythm

The daily schedule at The Strawberry Patch Preschool was created with our children’s needs in mind: new engaging activities on a daily/weekly basis to stimulate the mind and body, provided within our structured daily routine so the kids always know what is expected of them during their time at school.

We are open Monday-Thursday

children arrive

8:00am-9:00am

Our doors are unlocked and families arrive!  The first hour of our day together is choice time.  Children may play in either of our play rooms, enjoy books in our library, explore any of the activities we have out for our weekly theme, or create art in our project room.

circle time

 9:30am

After an hour of choice time children are excited for our daily gathering around the circle! Circle time includes our weekly letter study, calendar, songs/dances, story, and show & share!  On your child's show & share day each month they get to be our "helper" at circle...one of the kids favorite activities!

snack & project

 10am

Miss Jeanine provides a healthy snack each day!  

Project time is always different, and typically goes along with our weekly/monthly theme.  Miss Jeanine emails out a newsletter each week (and one is always on our parent board) so families know what our project will be every day!

outdoor play

 10:45am (ish)

Children are allowed to finish up snack and project at their own pace.  After all of our friends are finished we head outside to finish our day with some gross-motor play!  We go outside rain or shine so weather appropriate attire is encouraged!

Lunch 

 12:30PM

Lunches are sent from home daily.  

Afternoon Art & Play

 1pm

After finishing lunch kids can enjoy choice time as well as an afternoon art opportunity! At 1:45 we will head into our circle room for an end of day gathering to read a story and talk about the our day.  This will ease us into the next transition of getting ready to go home for the day. 

Goodbyes 

2:00pm
